I made these last night and they were lovely - melting the butter makes mixing a lot easier and less messy. I also added a rounded teaspoon of cinnamon which gave a really nice flavour. Thanks ;o) - 15 Sep 2013
Hello, I joined this site especially to say how delighted I was to find your family recipe for shortbread. Your gran is or must have been a great cook! I've tried almost a dozen recipes from all the well known names, but none of the results matched my expectation in taste and texture. I too always ignore the time wasting 'cream the warm butter & sugar together' method and just give the butter & sugar a blast in the micro for a few seconds to melt it first. I was therefore so glad to see your method, it's quick and easy, and the combination of ingredients is just perfect!!! 👏 Thank you 😃 - 29 Jan 2017
