Recipe by Missy Wombat

A true Aussie shortbread.

Top Review by willow16

I made this to give as a gifts. The texture was really nice and it looked great. At first I thought it wasn't sweet enough, but it actually tasted better the next day so I've updated my review to 4 stars! Easy to make and makes a large quantity.
