I got this from the Land o Lakes web site. This, of course, has it's roots from Scotland. It's soo easy and good. I can eat the whole pan myself! But I usually give it out as gifts during the holiday season, try it and see how good and easy it is!

This recipe was extremely easy to make. I tried one piece by itself, and it was wonderful. I then melted chocolate chips with some orange flavoring, and drizzled it over the rest of the shortbread. YUM!! I will try a different pan next time, as I had a hard time getting the shortbread out without breaking it into pieces. Thank you for an awesome recipe.

Wonderfully easy. So buttery and rich. I also tried it with crushed toffee added to it. Toasted nuts would be divine. That's my next trial! thanks.
