I LOVE a good bikkie…(there we go with the Aussie ‘ie’ on the end of everything!) These are simple, easy to make, and so yummy. You can freeze them, uncooked and whip out a roll any time, slice and bake; Instant fresh hot cookies, so impressive! Shortbread goes particularly well with some fresh brewed chocolate or coffee of course...hmmmn, off to bake!
