This recipe is a keeper! I followed everything and the dough was a little sticky to work with. Refridgerating it really helped! I rolled it up and sliced the pieces of cookie.<br/><br/>Just to take note of the time it spends in the oven because my first batch burnt! really have to watch it at the 10 minutes mark.<br/><br/>Also I do not own a mixer so everything was mixed manually - which is possible!

Oh yum! I made these and we placed an almond in the center and it looked so good. My family devoured these in about a day and a half!!!! Thank you for sharing with us, we loved them.

Everyone who tastes them said that was really good. I found them to sweet but maybe it was my mistake. My only problem was the fact that the dough is really smooth if you heat the butter for good and as a result it was difficult to cut shapes. Be careful not to move the cookies when they come out of the oven because break easily until they chill out.

Excellent!
I extended the baking time to 30 min and I liked them better. They got more crispier and the butter flavor was stronger.

I made these for Christmas and filled them with strawberry and fig jam then dipped in chocolate and sprinkles , they were amazing and better then any bakery. Also I made cutout gingerbread men, don't like gingerbread so I added about 2 tsp of coco powder to mix and 1tsp of instant coffe to 4 tblsps of water added to mix, these were great also.

So yummy! This is now a regular in our Christmas rotation. Chilled some of the dough, rolled into balls then in sugar before baking for a sweet crust on the outside, and this turned out well, too.

Yay! these were delicious and so easy...perfect for my first time making cookies since i was a little girl. now that I'm a mom, I decided it's time to start learning how to bake, and these cookies were perfect. they really do taste like shortbread, just the right amount of sweetness! next time i'll make a double batch because these were gone in less than 24 hours :) p.s. thanks to everyone on the forum for your tips for this novice baker!
