In the middle of my cookie tray are my shortbread.  This is another recipe I have not made in years and years but I thought my grandchildren would like them.  Guess what I was right.  It is a simple recipe to make and takes very little time.  You could if you wanted decorate them.  I just didn’t have the time so on went a little sugar.
