I made these for after an dinner tea social. They were a wonderful compliment to the evening. The only issue was that I couldn't get the shortbread to release from the pan whole - and I didn't want to force it, so I cut it, then removed it one piece at a time. It worked fine, but next time I will line the bottom of the pan with some parchment. The recipe was very easy to prepare and turned out very well, both texture and taste. I drizzled some melted semi-sweet chocolate over half. I recommend it.

I have made this for the last 3 or so years for my family for Christmas. Everyone raves about it, and they all keep asking me for the recipe. I'm almost ashamed to share it with them as it is so easy, yet impresses everyone.
