Winner! Exactly.

We made short bread - lots and lots of shortbread and there were some whiskey sours involved ;)

20 boxes or so to give to friends and relatives. These cookies are about 5 inches across and each box has about 8 cookies in a cello sleeve tied up with a bit of ribbon. We kept the not so perfect cookies out to eat with drinks. The fruited cookies don;t look nearly as nice as plain short bread but sure do taste great! if you want to make plain, leave out the fruit. This short bread recipe is fabulous and the corn flour gives the perfect sandy texture and adds a little flavor.

I gave up when I read:
6 lbs butter
1 liter bourbon
24 C flour
6 C corn flour
6 C sugar

I had an inkling that it wasn't "dessert for two"...
