Shortbread cookie poll

Ok so... I've decided that my favorite cookie to make is the shortbread.
I thought it'd be kinda cool to do a poll. Some people use granulated sugar and some use powdered sugar. Which one do you use?

I use powdered. I think it makes them more chewy and yummy!

Wife makes these so I had to ask her, she says she prefers powdered sugar. She says it gives it a nicer texture.

I like brown sugar. It makes them "butterscotch-y."

I'll have to try the brown sugar next time... Do you have a generic recipe? And do you use any other flavors for them?

just sub out brown sugar for the white!

Maple sugar is divine if you can find some!

powdered sugar will give you a crisp and smooth texture. granular sugar will give you a sandy texture. both taste great.
