Christmas is round the corner and I have all the more reason to bake....Baking has become therapeutic for me...It gives me immense peace and a sense of satisfaction.....And the best part is, I get to share the recipes, I have been making for a long time or the ones which I have learned over time with the help of a lot of wonderful bloggers out there...This shortbread recipe is one of the oldest recipe I possess.....Scribbled on a piece of a torn paper, I inherited it from my Mom......Now you see, that's the lazy me...When ever I take out the recipe paper, tucked between a diary pages, I make mental note to fair it somewhere safe......But it hasn't been done for years....I am really glad, I have a blog now, and made these cookies.....Though I would want to keep that piece of paper for ever, I have a safe copy too.......These cookies are a delight to make...Crunchy, melt in your mouth buttery cookies...Yummm.....So here is the recipe
