    I never used to like shortbread until I tried this recipe. The cookies stay moist and melt in your mouth. Dont let the corn starch fool you, you'd never know it was in there!! Enjoy!

      I did this just as the recipe said. I had to guess if the butter was supposed to be room temp or cold. (I assumed room temp) The batter was the consistency of cake frosting. I thought that was strange, but I baked them anyway. They fell apart when I was taking them off the cookie sheet, and they tasted awful. I felt like I was eating sand. There was no flavor at all. Perhaps I did something wrong. But these were awful.
