Excellent cookies. The flavour improves as they age. Richly "short", creamy white and smooth on top. I made the rolled version. If using unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt.
These are very easy and delicious. I added a dash of salt, and drizzled the finished cookies with melted chocolate.
I had gotten this recipe off the cornstarch box years ago but since I've moved a few times since I couldn't find it. It is by far the best shortbread I've ever used. I used my mixer and beat it, the just spoon it onto the cookie tray and smooth is out a little with a fork. It give more of a whipped shortbread texture. I also use it as the base for my my cheesecake, which people love and is a nice change from the usual graham crumb base.
This year, in an attempt to personalize our gifts AND hopefully save a buck or two, we researched cookie recipes. This has to be one of the best little cookies it is possible to bake. I am putting together a cookbook for my daughter, recently married and a college student. Recipes must be easy for a novice AND delicious. This recipe is definitely in.Thank you, Kayla.
I have made these twice,, the 1st time the dough was a bit crumbly as I am not really adept with pastry but they were good... The 2nd time these were wonderful,, light buttery and sprinkled with icing sugar... The next batch I make I wil try with dipping half in chocolate just for something different... These have pushed the bar up a little further.. No more store bought for me.. Thanks for a great recipe.
Thank you Kayla! I made these for Christmas. My dad said they taste like his mom's. They are so yummy. Next time I will double the recipe.
This was such an easy and wonderful recipe . I will make them all throughout the year. Next time I make them I will dip them in melted chocolate. It is a keeper :-)
These are awesome. My hubby made them not just for us, but for an event we attended. They were all gobbled up. We're now planning on making more just before x-mas. Thanks!!!
These cookies are gr8!! My kidz totally love them. Since I have discovered this recipe I have to make them non-stop. My daughter had them even stolen from her locker!! Beijos RochB
Simple and easy. I added some powdered sugar to the top of the cookies. I do think they would be good with chocolate drizzled on them. My husband didn't care for them as much though. He sprinkled cinnamon and powdered sugar on top. He thought they were lacking something without that. He would probably give them 3 stars.
