      How did I forget to rate this after all this time! One word - YUM! No eggs (good for me) and easy. Thanks for posting!

      WOW! Despite the positive reviews, I also didn't expect much from such a simple recipe when I picked it, but figured it was so simple it was worth a shot. I was pleasantly surprised! It took about 3/34 to 4 cups of flour, plus the flour on the kneading board, to get this dough to a consistency that could be cut and transferred to cookie sheets. I used half salted butter and half unsalted butter; next time I will use all salted butter as I did feel the cookies needed that little extra oomph. I will also probably use a little more brown sugar, maybe a 1/4 cup, but that's my personal preference as I would like them just a little sweeter when I serve them at my office Christmas party. However, the amount of sugar in the recipe does produce a very nice shortbread cookie that is perfect with coffee. This recipe gets five stars for being easy and delicious, the best of everything!!!

      These cookies are tender & delicious! I love the almost-carmelized flavor that the brown sugar brings. I cut the recipe in half; used salted butter and liked that tiny hint of salt with the sweet. I meant to add a bit of my homemade vanilla-rum extract, but forgot; next time! Thank you so much, Chef Vseward!
