Okay this a new family favorite that happened this year. My mom is the scottish one and she firmly beleived there is no reason to change or alter our classic recipe. But my dad pushed for this idea and we have created a new tradition with these things. So we made our classic shortbread and then added a little twist to create these tasty little treats. Im pretty sure Santa would enjoy these easy little cookies as well...
1 Pound of Butter (4 Sticks)
1 Cup of Sugar
4 1/2 Cups of Flour
