Made as written for CQ #4 & the Happy Campers team - At our house plus among my USA & Icelandic family members, I'm known as the "Cookie Monster". So my CM persona is very happy that I found your recipe. These shortbread cookies are light as air & I esp like that they are not overly sweet as some versions tend to be. My yield was spot-on at 20 cookies & they were very easy to roll, but I do suggest leaving the dough in the fridge to keep it chilled between baking the batches. Lovely recipe Momaphet. Thx for sharing it w/us. (Pic will post later today)
