Notes

I am always looking for variations for shortbread cookies and particularly was pleased when I found this recipe. I never realized that you can use shortbread dough as refrigerator cookies.

Variation: Cherry Pecan Shortbread:

Omit hazelnuts.

Mix dough until smooth then mix in 3/4 cup chopped candied cheries and1/2 cup chopped pecans until evenly distributed.

Variation:

Peanut Butter : Decrease butter to 1/2 cup. Add 2/3 cup peanut butter (either smooth or crunchy)
