      Very Good! I am a lover of shortbread and this one is excellant. Super easy to make as well. I made a 1/2 recipe and got 18 cookies. Made for SPRING PAC 2010 http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

      This is one of the BEST shortbread recipes I've ever tasted! Having a Scottish husband, we have shortbread in the house 365 days per year so I bake a LOT of shortbread. I cut the recipe in half to duplicate the volume in my original recipe so it would be easy to compare. I've never made a shortbread with melted butter so I was very curious as to how it would bake up. Mixing it together was no problem; it's a much stiffer dough than what I'm used to and slightly more crumbly, too, so it took a bit of work to make it stay together. Patted into a rectangle and decorated with my standard heart cut-outs. Baked in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes and cut it into bite-sized cookies which we like best. The taste is superb: very, very buttery and sweet. It became an instant hit at our home! Made for Spring PAC 2010. For those interested in the conversions of 1/2 the ingredients, here it is: 1 stick melted butter; 2.5 T. powdered sugar; 2.5 T. cornstarch; 2 T sugar; 1 tsp. vanilla; 1 cup flour + 2 T flour. Follow directions per recipe.
