Mom's shortbread

 My mom who was an excellent baker and cook used to make the very best shortbread but I never had a lot of luck with her recipe.  Today I decided to give it a whirl again and mom must have been watching over me since it turned out - the resident cookie monster has given it a thumbs up or is that simply because he hasn't had home made cookies for awhile?

Here's the recipe if you're interested.

It is so funny that you have posted about a cookie recipe. Not more than 2 minutes ago I told my husband I was in the mood to bake Christmas cookies, and we were deciding on a day to do it. I might just try your mom's recipe! I wanted to thank you for visiting and leaving the nice comment on my blog. Ellianna is really beautiful, and of course the pictures didn't do her justice! So tiny and sweet and soft, I just love her. I'm your newest follower. It's so nice to meet you!
