Shortbread jalapeno cookies are sweet and tangy, with just a little burn at the end.

Defintely will not make again. A recipe should give you good, helpful amounts and cooking times. This recipe, if you follow it, makes something akin to cleaning fluid. I have to wonder if the author even made it. The lime flavor was too, too strong and the jalapeño was not even close to being present. I've written the author's name down, so I will know not to make any more recipes from her. Read More
