    I cut this from the Winnipeg Free Press Food section on February 25, 2004 and decided to post it here for safe keeping! I plan to try this soon! Cook time does not include the 1 hour chill time for the dough.

      While the recipe itself was made exactly as written for the Sweet December event, I did take a liberty w/the prep & presentation as you can see in the pic. I planned well-ahead to make these shortbread cookies, but the timing decision was made hastily & left little room for chilling the dough or forming into cookies. So I spread the dough into a lrg shallow baking pan, skipped the chill time & cut the finished product into bars that I dusted w/powd sugar. The recipe is a tasty & ingredient-friendly easy-fix that also gets high marks from me for its versatility. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us.,

      My adult daughter is picky about the consistency of shortbread cookies and was a little concerned about 'oatmeal shortbread'. When I made these cookies, she tasted and said they were absolutely without a doubt the best shortbread cookie she ever tasted. Everything about them was perfect and the taste was so rich, yet light on the tongue. This is going to be a staple in our cookie repertoire.

      This cookie is tasty, crispy and one of my favorites. I was looking for something without a ton of sugar in it. I made these with 1/4 cup of splenda brown sugar, and 1/4 cup of regular brown sugar. I chilled my dough for 1 hour, which is necessary. I baked the full 15 min. These were crazy good and kept for a week very well.... if they last that long.
