Looks like PA Baker got you started .... as for a recipe, just start with a basic shortbread/butter cookie recipe and see how it turns out. If it's not tender enough - next time increase the butter a little ("shorten" it). I'm sure you will not be short of cookie testers who will be more than glad to eat your experiments.
Hey Michael, I do make the easy recipes all the time for shortbread. I don't think I've ever measured the ingredients either, any of them. But for some reason, this cookie around this truffle, was so very delicate. And the part about the testers waiting in line to try out my experiments? I'd be the first in line, I think I simply adore Scottish Shortbread cookies. They are simple and elegant.

one of the secrets to a tender shortbread is the use of confectioners or powdered sugar. another might be the flour...try a few different grades. and of course the butter...use European style, higher fat content.

Thanks for all the good ideas here. I bought these molds from KA Flour about two years ago....but I haven't used them yet.

I'm determined to make some of these cookies within the next couple of weeks --as soon as the weather cools.

The recipe that came with the set calls for Almond Paste, I just purchased some---but it's not always available here where I live, so I really appreciate the suggestion of using a shortbread dough. I'm sure I can think of some yummy fillings to go with... Thanks for the good recipes and ideas!

Lefse, are you in Tulsa, or somewhere in So. Cal? Only reason I'm asking, is that's where I'm from.
