Well my daughter made these awhile back and then we made a FEW more batches this Christmas. She eats them for breakfast !! This year we made a whole bunch more and she gave them away as gifts. Awesome cookies Uncle Bill.

OK, the dough was crumbly and it was impossible to spoon it out. Used my hands and it was no problem at all to "gather the crumbs" to get a little ball which I then flattened into a cookie. Made indentations in the cookies and filled half of them with jam and on the other half I placed a cashew nut in the middle. I got 24 cookies and they baked in 14 minutes. They smell wonderful, taste even better and so easy to make. Great cookie! Thanks for posting.

Fantastic cookie! Sprinkle them with colored sugar before baking for a holiday-themed cookie. YUM!

Great cookies! So easy to make as well. I topped some with cherries and some with mini kisses. 15 minutes had them fairly brown on the bottom, so will probably cut the time slightly, but I will definately be making these a regular holiday treat. Thanks for posting! :)

I am not the best baker in town- so to find a simple, yet delicious cookie recipe is gold to me. I thumbprinted raspberry preseveres and they were excellent! At Christmas I had my son's put sprinkles on tiny balls of dough and they were a perfect treat! They were moist and tasty- My son has an egg allergy and this recipe he can enjoy! Thanks Uncle Bill.

This was a good recipe.However,it was so light and fluffy,it melted in my mouth good.But,it tasted more like a spritz cookie than a shortbread.I added red food coloring to make it look like a Christmas cookie plus sprinkled them with sprinkles.Next time I will double the batch.It really is a great cookie recipe!!Thanks Uncle Bill.

These were very good but I now know I prefer a harder shortbread cookie. They definately melt in your mouth so if you like that type, you will love this recipe! Thanks!

Not the prettiest cookie ever, but boy do they taste good! These are especially good when warm. I topped a handful with peach preserves, and some with dark chocolate. But, our favorite were the original. These are just sweet enough, and richly buttery, but airy and light at the same time. It was nice to try something just slightly different. Will definitely make again.
