Perfect recipe! I used granulated sugar blended fine. I entered these cookies in the county fair & won first prize - thank-you!

Great recipe. I accidently made the mixture into a bread crum texture at first but after adding some more butter it was fine. Because I didn't have any caster sugar I used granulated but they were still delicious. Used the recipe for 18 but it only made around 10. Overall though this was a great recipe.

Excellent Shortbread recipe. I added a teaspoon or two of milk to make the mix a little softer and added some 100's and 1000's for something a little different and cut them into shape.

I made this for my Book Club meeting last night, and it was a hit. Everyone wants the recipe! I used the measurements provided, but didn't use the same method. I was lazy and used a food processor. I put regular sugar in the food processor and whizzed it to kind of grind it up, then added the butter and creamed it together until it got fluffy, then I whizzed in the flour in 2 parts. it didn't mix thoroughly, so I did mix it by hand a bit at the end. I lined a half sheetpan with parchment and pressed it in with my fingertips and poked with a fork. I followed the previous reviewer's suggestion and cut with a pizza roller and topped with turbinado sugar. I baked at 300 for the first 25 mins, then increased to 325 for an additional 10 minutes. It came out perfect and delicious.

My husband loves shortbread, so he was happy that I chose this recipe for the Pick a Chef game. He wasn't disappointed. :) I did take a shortcut with the rolling/cutting. I rolled the dough out directly on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cut it with a pizza wheel. Since I just left the rectangles in place without separating them, I did have to add to the baking time, but it was a simple, no-mess way to get them ready to go into the oven. I chilled before baking and sprinkled the tops with turbinado sugar. Nice basic shortbread--thanks for posting!
