If this doesn't taste like your grandma's, then your grandma must've been a lousy cook. This is amazingly buttery shortbread, and was easy to make. My only change would be to cook it a little longer (maybe 5-7 minutes), and cut it into bars with a pizza wheel before it sets. Mine turned out fantastic, and I commend the submitter for an outstanding recipe. Read More

This is truly wonderful and easy! I have also added some almond flavoring, which was very good. I used a cookie scoop and made individual cookies, which I found to be easier to handle. Read More

This is the easiest and most tender shortbread I have ever made! It turns out everytime and my Grandaughters Autumn 4 yrs and Tehya 1 3/4 yrs old love it! Thanks for posting this I will use it often! I do add 2 tsp of vanilla. I throw everything into my big Kitchenaid stand mixer and let it mix until I have a soft dough and then I press the dough into a jelly roll pan that I have put parchment paper in and sprayed w/ cooking spray. I also spray my hands and then I just press it into the pan to fit. I have used either butter or margarine and it always turns out great with either one! Sassycook Read More
