I have found that these cookies don't keep well for more than a week. Of course, they don't usually last that long around here! LOL

Notes

I found this recipe in a Family Circle Holiday Cakes and Cookies magazine from 2002. I have a brother with a particular fondness for shortbread cookies. He got a tin of these for Christmas that year and he wouldn't share!!!! LOL
