    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These shortbread bars is one of my all-time favorite recipes... I find that baking shortbread in a baking pan somehow produces a flakier, richer cookie...I'm sure you will enjoy these as much as we do.

      Delicious and buttery shortbread! I added 1.5 tsp vanilla and baked 24 minutes in an 8x8 dark metal pan. I let sit in the pan for about 10 minutes before I flipped it onto a rack to cool. I used this recipe to make shortbread jam bars.. I cut in half and spread warm jam to make a "sandwich." I then topped with a sugar cookie glaze. Indulgent!

      Wonderful recipe! I doubled the recipe and lightly pressed in into a 13x9 pan. I also mixed in some dried cranberries, orange zest and pecans for a delicious tangy twist. Five stars!!!!!!!
