And therein lies the whole crux of the matter. Same recipe, but Americans bake them ROUND and call them butter cookies, whilst Europeans bake them RECTANGULAR and call them shortbread. :frown:

Well, the Americans don't like to be shortchanged and so shortbread is butter cookie?

in that case - to answer Bluesmans slightly bizaare and worrying question: i would crawl over the decomposing body of my own mother-in-law to eat shortbread.

anyone know a decent trickcyclist, i think he's really losing it...

Bluesman, you haven't been fooling around with a Girl Scout Leader lately have you?

You can have a buttered cookie and a shortbread.

It means the same thing. ;)

Like colour and color.

But then the language is of the British! ;)

He who knows and knows that he knows is a wise man.
