Simple and perfect. These cookies are always a hit!
Added finely chopped walnuts. Excellent twist.
I have made these several times . Family loves them!
The only thing I do different is I ad about 1/4 cup more flour to the dough to make it more crumbly . the dough will feel coarse like a crumb topping or pie crust does but after you chill it and roll it into balls and bake they will not flatten out and will indeed have more of a shortbread texture . The person who had the idea of using a chap stick to make the dent was right! !For those that say these are dry....Shortbread is supposed to be dry. These are a family favorite!
Anyone I serve these to LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!! It’s requested over n over again!
I use seedless raspberry jam
My husband couldn't get enough of these cookies when I made them. They are equally fabulous with a Nutella or melted chocolate chip drizzle. Don't skip the chilling step.
Very easy to make and taste will definitely be making these again.
