      This is a wonderful tasting shortbread. It is sooo good that I had a hard time resisting eating all of it myself. When my DH came home I told him there was some really good shortbread cookies on the stonewear sitting on the stove. He said, "You're right, this is really good". As he left the kitchen I noticed he was like a little kid. One piece in each hand. BTW since my dough was so soft I refrigerated it after rolling thin then actually baked it on the piece of parchment then cutting with a sharp knife after baking before it cooled. EASY! Who cares if it is beautifully decorated or's the taste that counts! Made for PAC Fall 2009
