Very yummy! It's not too sweet and tasted just right. I modified it a bit by adding in choc chips. Something I'm planning on making again soon

So simple and very yummy! I used an 8x8 pan and it worked fine. An hour was just about perfect, but a couple more minutes might have made it too well-done, so you might want to peek at it a little sooner.

Shortbread is one of the simplest cookies you can make, and requires few ingredients. This recipe produced cookies that were crisp and tender, buttery and rich, and just barely sweet. Perfect for those who like to have a very simple yet tasty cookie or biscuit with their coffee or tea.
