A must for those of you who like shortbread-type cookies! I made half a batch and got about 35 2-inch delicate buttery cookies that melt in the mouth! They came together in a jiffy in my processor. The interesting thing is the only sweetness is in the icing and therefore can be adjusted according to preference, either just a dab or smothered! You will have to adjust the amount of icing and perhaps make it thicker (less milk, more powdered sugar). Enjoy!
