Do any of you Bakers, have a great recipe for Shortbread cookies?

Question by Gengar57: Do any of you Bakers, have a great recipe for Shortbread cookies?
I am looking for a recipe for shortbread cookies. I like the ones that are buttery, and have that dry, crumbly texture, like WALKER’S SHORTBREAD. I’d like to just pat the dough into a cheesecake pan to make it easier.
Thanks.
