    Could not get to hold together even enough to form a ball. Was actually kinda tasty if pressed into a pan, but couldn't make any other forms.

    Try making this recipe in a spring form pan for easy removal.

    Just took the lemon version to a cookie party and these got rave reviews! Iespecially liked the lemon glazed cookies. I used lemon juice and lime zest. Very pretty and unexpectedly fast and easy.

    Tasted amazing, but we had to mix it for at least 10 minutes to get the crumbs to even sort of adhere together. The cookies were great, though. What's not to like about butter & flour? We made the raspberry window shortbreads from Sunset.

    An unmitigated disaster! The ratio of butter to flour is so wrong that the cookies do not bake; instead the butter melts away leaving floury grease spots of the baking sheet. I wasted 3 hours, a lot of butter and effort all to get a few cups of sweet buttery crumbs. Argh!!!

    A new family favorite. The second time I tried the recipe I used a food processor, so much quicker and easier than a regular mixer. Probably one of the best shortbread recipes i've tried. I now make 2 cake pans every week. My family has not tired of it yet. trying the lemon version next, and also thinking of trying orange zest,
