Shortbread Christmas Cookies
November 28, 2015

Overall I just found this recipe average, not the go to cut-out cookie recipe I was hoping for. I made the recipe exactly as written except that I used a food processor to cut in the butter. The flavor is an authentic, soft buttery, slightly floury shortbread one so if that's your reason for trying this, it's a good recipe. I was disappointed that my cookie dough was very sticky and impossible to work with, even after ample time in the fridge. The results were sporadic as far as keeping their shapes with many of them spreading too much. I was careful not to re-use warm cookie sheets, I used parchment paper and chilled dough so I don't know what went wrong.
