Reviewed Shortbread Cookies Recipe : Ina Garten : Food Network

2 days ago on

My cookies were delicious but spread out and lost their design. I used a store brand of butter and wonder if the water content caused this to happen as well as those who reviewed that their dough was crumbly. Butter is a natural product and therefore will vary in its water content. Next time I will try a name brand like Land O Lakes and see what happens....

I purchased the shortbread cookie cutter especially for this recipe. The cookies were delicious but they spread so much you could not see their shape. They came out as an oval with no design at all. The dough on shortbread is always crumbly so I had no problem with that, just the spreading. I am going to try freezing the cookies and baking them from...

great muffins, moist and flavorful. Only thing I added was the zest of 1 orange and extra spices (1/4 teaspoon cardamom, 1/4 nutmeg) in addition to the ones in the recipe. Best I have made in awhile.

After reading the reviews I cut salt to 3/4 teaspoon and lowered temperature to 375 degrees and this is perfect. The were absolutely fabulous. Two people that I shared them with said they were the best cookies they had ever tasted. My cookies tended to spread out a bit more that Ree's did but that is fine. I used a smaller scoop for the batter tha"

Followed recipe exactly but thought it was still a little bland so added part of a jar of "hot" prepared salsa and it was great. I find adding salsa to many soups that lack a bit of kick works well, I keep a jar in my pantry all the time."

I read many of the reviews before making these and noticed that many people had difficulty handling the dough.I made them according to the recipe and mine were very light and spread quite a bit. There are 5 teaspoons of baking soda in these and that could very well account for the light texture and the difficulty handling. Flavor was wonderful but"
