      Quick and easy! I doubled the vanilla andused caster sugar. They did brown up quite a bit, but perhaps my oven was a bit hot. I pulled them out before they burned. Not like a traditional shortbread but very delicious! Thanks!

      Melt-in-your-mouth cookies. So easy to make too. Instead of unsalted butter I used 1 cup regular butter (2 sticks) which is equivalent to 1/2 lb. butter and omitted the salt. I lined the 9 inch square baking pan with parchment paper which made it easy to pull the cookie out onto a cutting board to cut into squares. Yummy addition to my cookie cook book and favorite zaar recipes three-ring binder too. Update July 1,2009 Made these again without parchment paper liner and they came out perfect. My family and friends love these cookies. Have shared your recipe with all of them. Made a batch to take to a pot luck Canada Day party today.
