    These cookies are awesome! I had never made shortbread cookies before, but from now on, these are it! Wanted a crispy like cookie for my afternoon coffee. So easy and simple to make, I did chill my dough for about an hour as I had other thing to do. Takes only a few ingredients and I doubled the receipt as I knew they wouldn't last long! You MUST use real butter, no substitutions. I only had salted butter and still delicious. Butter is better for you anyway, not that yucky oleo/margarine stuff.

    MMMMM I was glad that I found the recipe online, it isn't on my cornstarch box anymore.<br/>Make sure you sift the dry ingredients as stated or you might get little crunchies lumps in the otherwise melt in your mouth cookies.

    Great!!!! Melt in your mouth cookies that are fantastic!!!! When mixing the butter, I used my hands rather than a wooden spoon and I think that made it alot easier! I decorated mine with Christmas sprinkles, baked them for exatly 15 minutes and ended with a great cookie! Thanks for the recipe mmlwjr!
