I was looking for a recipe that I could basically let my six year old daughter take control over. This recipe for shortbread was terrific. We weren't advanced enough to try to make words, but nonetheless it was delicious. What we did was spread it out over a tray and make it like a slice.-08 Dec 2009(Review from this site AU | NZ)
