I would definitely make them again...I learned the hard way to not cream the cold butter & powdered sugar, but I put the mixture in the microwave for about 20 sec. and it was no longer crumbly. These are the perfect shortbread cookies. Make sure you're not using cold butter, but rather softened. It worked great with a cheap-o cookie press I got for $5. Will definitely make again! 5 stars

Loved this cookie but there are a few things the recipe doesn't mention that are really important. You should whip the butter FIRST until its really fluffy (about 5min every whip). Then add the sugar and whip again until it is very fluffy. I like to add a pinch of nutmeg or two for depth. I then add the vanilla, salt and cornstarch and whip again until VERY fluffy. I hand mix in the flour with a spoon until just incorporated. After its done I cool the dough until it isn't sticky then I separate and roll them into logs in parchment or wax paper and regenerate until solid (4-5 logs 3/4-1" wide) Then I cut them about half and inch wide. I also only cook them for 7-8min and cooked a 1/4 maraschino cherry on each. They were perfect!!! Will use every year. 5 stars

These are very melt in your mouth. It is important to beat long enough until fluffy usually about 10 minutes. At that point they start to be a lighter color. I use almond flavoring and usually a little dab of almond flavored icing with an 1/8 of a maraschino cherry on top 5 stars

These are fabulous! I finally found the recipe my mother used to make! I didn't use a cookie press for these, I simply spooned out some dough on parchment paper and pressed down slightly in the middle. I also used salted butter and whipped the butter in my mixer before adding the dry ingredients.. then I whipped everything together for about 10 minutes so the dough looked like creamy mashed potatoes and baked them for about 10 minutes since my oven runs a bit hot. Everyone loved these cookies! This is the only recipe for me! 5 stars

This is the first recipe that I could get to work well with my cookie press. The cookie is a lovely texture--not too much taste of cornstarch..

One comment about those that found it too crumbly-often times one hasn't mixed it enough. This is one of those recipes that needs fluffy butter/sugar and you really need to incorporate the flour and cornstarch a little bit at a time. Also, it works way, WAY better with a mixer.
5 stars
