THANKS!!

I love shortbread and it's so easy to make.

It's a good thing to make with kids and still can be gussied up and made into something fairly elegant.

Did you make the one with the toasted pecans and the shaved, bittersweet chocolate? OMG, I had to slap myself to keep out of that cookie tin!

No, buy I make mocha shortbread stars dipped in dark chocolate and brushed with a touch of edible gold dust for a ladies' tea I went to. Man were those things good! They almost didn't make it to the tea!
