I've never been much for baking shortbread (though I like eating it), so this was a nice change-of-pace for me! Loved the combo of lime & coconut in this version! Simple & easy-to-make, too, although not long-lasting ~ I think, last night, with my guests, they were gone within 30 minutes! Thanks, much, for sharing your recipe!
