20 minutes , makes 12 cookies. These are a rich, dense biscuit. They are also good used as shortbread with strawberries. You can vary the taste and texture by varying the second ingredient, we actually use Macadamia nuts as these give a wonderful taste to the biscuit. If you miss the real shortbread biscuit made with butter and wheat you’ll truly enjoy these. They stick to your teeth and roof of your mouth just like the real thing. So settle down with a couple of these and a freshly brewed coffee. I promise you’ll like them.
