    This is an excellent recipe. Thank you! The results were nearly as good as my favorite (award winning!) shortbread, Bonnie Doons. I tweaked the recipe a little bit, but kept the ratios the same. I cut it in half and it still made a lot of cookies! I used raw honey and no nuts. I used tapioca starch for part of the flour (1/4 c. + 1/8 c. and the rest flour). For the flour, I used extra-fine flour. And I substituted 2 T of the butter for virgin coconut oil. Also, I added a pinch of sea salt. I sprinkled coconut flakes on half of the dough and then baked it in an enamel-coated iron baking dish at 300 for 40-45 minutes or so and then cut it and put it in the freezer. Once it was cool, I put it back in the oven at 450 for 5-10 minutes to give it some more color and then put it in the freezer to cool again.

    You are very right about shortbread as a luxury... we only get it at Christmas... this looks awesome!

    This is a nice find for me. My husband eats no refined sugar. I cook a lot with honey and always on the look out for a good honey sweetened cookie for him. Thanks Mystic_rive! I've printed this one to use right away.
