    This recipe left us a little less than impressed, but it has found new Life as sidewalk chalk. The grandkids loved it!

    Wonderful flavor and super easy recipe. I've made it about 3 or 4 times and it's always simply delcious. The two men in my life enjoy this. And I don't add any icing. It is delicious without it. Thanks, Martha, you are my hero!

    Really delicious flavour... very subtle, but nice. I didn't bother with the icing. I'm not sure if I went wrong somewhere, but the cookie consistency after baking was a little soft and chewy. It was really good, just I'm not sure if that's what is supposed to happen with shortbread cookies.

    This is just what I was looking for! I added 1 Tablespoon of milk. I scored them into 16 pieces rather than 8 and spread them with melted chocolate mint pieces. *yummy

    Very tasty. This turns out great, but it's not very sweet, and reminiscent of dark chocolate. It is kind of "one note". (I do not favor the idea of icing, but I did not try it. Instead I sunk a chocolate chip in the center of each cut piece and that was good.) But next time I will add a drizzle of orange glaze on top of these. The glaze would add a bit of sweetness, complementary orange flavor, and also a bit of "wetness" to offset the sandy shortbread texture.

    WOW! I've never seen such a response! Gale - If you are out there PLEASE post your recipe here or else you've got a lot of emails to answer. :) I'd like your recipe also. The candy corn suggestion walkokd2 posted (just before me) had also come to mind when I saw the picture of these.

    Me too! I saw this recipe and I want to attempt dipping the wedges into first, melted white chocolate, then some melted orange chocolate disks, and voila candy corn! But first I think I need Gale's recipe! Can I be included please? Thank you! Kate
