Love this recipe and have used it many times. It says fruit sugar it is also called Rapid Disolving Sugar. For a twist here's a few things I've tried. 1) add 2 tsp vanilla. 2) add mini semi or dark chocolate chips or mint chocolate chips. 3) before baking decorate with coloured sugar chocolate chips sprinkles dried fruit or nuts(pecan walnuts etc). 4) if cooking in a pan try scoring the dough before cooking in the shapes of the bars you want. Making a large amount? Try spreading if to fill a cookie sheet. Perfect thickens and flat on both sides. The scoring can make them break apart with the tap of a knife on the line. 5) make these often? Try a shortbread Mold. Lee Valley Tools has one for around 40 CAN with the traditional thistle pattern.
