These cookies were delicious! I halfed the recipe as I just wanted a small amount of goodies in the house and that worked great. Obviously I rolled them too thin as my yield was about 18 cookies, but not to worry, they still were perfect shortbread consistency. They kept well in a ziploc until the last bite!
To quote my oldest son, "Man, we hit the jackpot with these cookies!" They are delicious. I doubled the recipe. I did not see anywhere about how thick to roll, so I just eyeballed it to the thickness of the store bought kind. My DH's favorite cookie. I can't wait for him to try them! Thanks for a great, easy recipe that will be repeated many times.

After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
