    Paprika Pink's Note:

    Let's see how this turns out.....HA! Too funny. I was cooking while I entered this recipe here. It turned out disastrous. I FORGOT TO ADD THE FLOUR!! Sheesh. When I realized, it'd been baking for about 7 minutes, I took it out and just mixed in two cups of flour. Then baked it...about 20 minuts at 350, but the edges were browning while the middle was still mushy so I turned the heat off and left it in the oven. It turned out okay. Better maybe if I'd cooked it longer at a lower temp. AND REMEMBERED THE FLOUR!

      I have been wanting to make shortbread with brown sugar for awhile now, and this did not disappoint. I have a shortbread pan that I patted the dough into and it imprints designs into the shortbread. Very good, thanks for posting!

      It does help to add the flour ;) I also found it browned around the edges before it was firm in the middle, so I lined the edges with a little silver foil, which did the trick. Otherwise, it worked well, I sprinkled the finished shortbread with some caster sugar before allowing it to cool. DH very much appreciates having a tin of shortbread to nibble on, so this was a real winner!! Thank you PP, this was made for PAC Fall 2012
