    The BEST shortbread recipe I have tried ever! Every one that tasted them loved them. Faultless. - 04 Sep 2013


    I'm a shortbread snob and I absolutely LOVE this recipe. It has that beautiful buttery taste with the crunchy (semolina) texture. I chose to roll the mixture and cut tree and star shapes for Christmas. Unlike other recipes, the biscuits held their shape and didn't "melt" at the edges. - 16 Dec 2016
