These were good and an extremely fast and easy cookie to make. Just a tip...when adding the flour mixture just mix until combined. I ended up mixing it until it was all smooth and it turned out way to sticky that I had to scoop it out with a spoon. OOPS! I added both white and dark chocolate chips to these. And to give it an added flavor add about a teaspoon of either vanilla or almond extract to it they both are great! Read More

I prefer a sweeter cookie but these are good for shortbreads. I added vanilla extract as suggested and it didn't seem to add much flavor. It was a little starchy tasting and it made me very thirsty! These would be good with coffee. I probably won't make these again. Read More

Ive made these 3 times now. 1/2 cup powederd sugar seemed kind of low even for shortbread cookies so I did somewhere in between 1/2 cup and 3/4 cup. Also I found that its best not to soften the butter but to whip it up cold. These are very good though. I made them the other night for my parents party. We had also ordered some cookies from a bakery but all of my cookies got eaten long before the bakery ones. All the guests kept asking my mom for the recipe. Read More

For a richer flavor I add 1/2 tsp of vanilla to the creamed sugar. I also flatten the cookies slightly before cooking. Great recipe. Read More

I found that adding 1t of almond extract can give this recipe a nice variation. I also substitute 1/2c Crisco for half of the butter - personal preference - but it's a great recipe just as it is! Read More

These were very good i doubled the recipie that way i could use the whole bag of chocolate chips..the open bag is too tempting... and they were just fine. i was a little sketical as the dough didn't taste very good so i added a little bit more powdered suger but the finished product tastes just fine a little "floury" but i don't think that distracts from the taste. i think they will be good with jam...i might try that next time...
