    *Marli*'s Note:

    A friend recently told me the best shortbread she's ever tried were the ones I baked for her at Christmas - I was very flattered, so I thought I better share this recipe on zaar! I like to halve this recipe & add 1/2 cup pecan nuts to one half & 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips to the other.

      Fantastic! I've made two batches of this now, and I love it. It's a simple dough to mix up, it rolls out nicely and bakes perfectly. The first batch I fit into a fluted tart pan and scored into wedges before baking. I think that pan baked about 25 minutes (at 350 degrees F). The second batch I rolled into a rectangle and sliced into smaller rectangles. Thanks for a great recipe Marl1. Glad to read your latest updates on your page, too, swap buddy!!
