    evelyn/athens's Note:

    an unusual shortbread recipe in that this one also uses brown sugar and some cornmeal - it works!!! Delicious with ice cream, or on their own.

      Great recipe. It was easy to make and was delicious! The shortbread is tasteful with an interesting texture, thanks to the cornmeal. I put jelly on it, and really liked the combination. My husband and I could not stop eating it! Will make it again for a special treat.

      Once I got around a mis-scaling of the flour amounts for an increased recipe, this worked out perfectly. I made one batch with 3/4 c. pecans added - perfect amount. I also added vanilla powder and a bare pinch of nutmeg to deepen the flavour, and used only light brown sugar instead of the mix. I'm definitely going to make this one again.
