Shortbread cookies have been a long time favorite of mine. I just can't resist these buttery, tender absolutely melt in your mouth cookies. It's just amazing to me how flour, sugar, butter , and in this case lemon too, come together so quickly and easily to make the best cookies ever. The recipe said to make these in a 15x10x1 jelly roll pan which would have been more than Paul and I needed so I halved the recipe and made them in a 9 inch square glass baking pan. The baking time stayed the same, about 30 minutes give or take a few. I halved the glaze as well.
