This traditional cookie never goes out of style. Great for Christmas gifts.

Top Review by Big Bill in Big D

Several years ago shortly after being introduced to RecipeZaar I made a decision which I have followed without regret ever since. The decision: when faced with the dilema of choosing from similar, and highly recommended recipes, if given the option -- always go along with MizzNezz ! I have never regreted the decision, so -- thanks once again MizzNezz. I believe I could come up with lots of "touch-ups" to add to the shortbread, but I am a firm believer in Aaron Copeland's theory of artistic expression -less is more! So why try fixin' something that ain't broke?
