  • I've been looking for a shortbread recipe with corn starch. My mom used to make them this way and since she's been gone, none of us could remember how she made them. Thanks! - 12/14/09

  • I used whole wheat flour and doubled the recipe, pressing it into a bar pan and cutting into 60 pieces. Took a lot longer to cook though, 45-50 mins I think. - 2/12/08
