    Delicious cookies. Tweaked recipe by adding dried,ground lavender flowers to my sugar. Also added 1/3 cup white chocolate chips when adding blueberries.

    I'm not a huge fan of shortbread but these are good if that is the kind of cookie you are looking for. I served them with a fancy fruit salad at my DBF's son's wedding rehearsal dinner and they were light and refreshing at the end of a big meal. Thanks much.

    A friend brought these to camp to share and they were wonderful. I'm posting because I hounded her for the recipe and will make them for sure. Lovely!

    These were really delicious. They tasted just like shortbread, nice and buttery. Everyone liked them, I just wish it made more (the cookies were pretty small, and I could only get 28 cookies out of the dough). The ingredients were easy to find - except for the dried blueberries. The only place I could find them was at Walgreen's, of all places! I'll make them again!
