This recipe comes from a cookbook called: "America's Best Cookbook for Kids With Diabetes". (I figured it is a pretty good cookbook for anyone with diabetes though)...It was written in 2005 by C Bartley. A friend gave me the book and the recipes that I have tried are awesome. I think this one would be a great "Gift In a Jar" diabetic recipe so I have done that here.

    DIETICIAN'S MESSAGE: Shortbread cookies are traditionally made with butter, which provides the characteristic rich, buttery flavor. If you wish, however, soft non-hydrogenated tub margarine can be substituted.

    TIP:
    Refrigerator cookie rolls can be wrapped in foil and refrigerated for up to two weeks or frozen in an airtight container for up to two months. When you are ready to bake, thaw the frozen rolls just until soft enough to slice.
