    Was a good base recipe. Cookies were light but cook faster than time instructed. I recommend 10-11 min when using convection oven. I also added almond extract and chopped walnuts for a little more dimension. Next time I may increase powdered sugar for a little more sweetness.

    Love this recipe. Light and airy cookie and it does melt in your mouth. I did add a touch more vanilla and coated them in cinnamon and sugar before baking. This one is a keeper. Deliciousness!!!

    just as I remembered eating these as a child. soft and crumbly texture that melts in your mouth. I rolled mine before dropping on the cookie sheet and dipped a fork in cornstarch before making an indentation with the tines of the fork. Next I placed a red or green candied cherry on top and sprinkled red or green glistening sprinkles on top of the cherries. This brought back childhood memories of making and decorating these cookies with my grandmother.

    really nice. i found them a bit more bitter then sweet but that was easily fixed with a bit of sugar on top.

    As the recipe implies - it’s a softer shortbread. Just sweet enough and great with a glass of milk.

    Amazing! This was so easy and simple to prepare, and my family loved them. I will definately be making them again.
