Best Shortbread Recipes
Shortbread is a staple in all of my family's holiday get togethers. I don't remember a single party at my Grandma's house that I didn't snack on yummy shortbread treats!
I'm sure there are lots of you out there who share the sentimental connection I have to shortbread desserts.
Whenever I make any of these recipes for family parties my kids go nuts! I can not keep them away from these desserts!
Sometimes I honestly don't feel like sharing and I end up eating half of the batch by myself.

Anything else is just a little extra fun! Adding chocolate, fruit, or sprinkles just makes you look like a master chef.
