"I found this recipe on-line from the blog of Lizel Salter, author of "Recipes from South Africa" and here is her description of the recipe: "This is a fantastic recipe for shortbread, a speciality of the Scottish. It is one of South Africa’s favourites and this is a recipe for home-made shortbread." The recipe doesn't indicate the amount this makes, so I am guessing at the amounts."
Serving Size: 1 (22 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 48
"These were really good...everyone that tried them enjoyed them...i think it needs more sugar, a little lemon extract & i probably should cut them thicker...& possibly undercooking it? that should make them exactly like Atlanta Bread Co. (ABC has THE best shortbread cookies!!) I made a half batch...measured ingredients by weight. 250g ap flour, 63g powdered sugar, 2 sticks of butter, 1/8 tsp. salt. I also used a hand mixer on low until it came together. Very easy to make! Thanks for posting!!:0)"
"I love shortbread, and this recipe is very good, tender and crispy. Perfection! Thanks for posting! Made for I RECCOMEND, 2012"
"Shortbread are my #1 favourite treat (yes, even beats chocolate). This recipe was gorgeous, delivering a wonderful biscuit/cookie with a buttery crunch, I made them today - will there be any left by tomorrow afternoon???. Made for ZWT8, The Fearless Red Dragons"
"These are so easy to make and come out light, crisp and buttery. Made 1 dozen since they do not contain chocolate I am sure DH won't be helping me eat these (which is fine with me!). I topped them with some sugar crystal sprinkles for a little extra sweet crunch. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks."
"Very, very simple, yet produces a delicate, elegant tea cookie with buttery richness. I rolled the dough into two logs the diameter of a banana, refrigerated, sliced, and baked 14 minutes on an airform tray, then dusted with powdered sugar using a tea strainer. Perfect. Made for ZWT8."
"My husband gave these 4 stars cause he said they needed to be a bit sweeter. However, I thought they were perfectly flavored with just the right amount of sweetness, so I'm giving them 5 stars. These were super fast to mix up and bake and mine were done after 15 minutes. Made for Count Dracula and his Hot Bites, ZWT 7."
"I love shortbread cookies and have made many different versions. I mean butter, sugar, flour... you can't really go wrong! I like the added salt in this version. I baked mine for 15 minutes and I got the exact number specified, so you were right on! I do think shortbread cookies take a little finesse to turn out with that 'melt in your mouth' texture - just putting everything in the bowl and mixing didn't create that result this time. Even so, this would be a very good recipe for a beginning cook!"
