Duncan Hines is a well known company and someone should have proof read these directions before they were posted. This is embarrassing!!!

This is basically the recipe my family has used for 60 years!!!!! Got it from my mom's friend who was of Scottish descent.

I have tried the recipe with margarine and butter, could not tell the difference, I also added a teaspoon of almond flavoring. Great favorite anytime.

Delicious! However I used butter instead of maragine for the true shortbread flavour

These sound easy and delicious. I love ShortBread Cookies, they've always been my favorite.
