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.

Crescent rolls.

Buy the packaged crescent roll dough (about 4 canisters)

Lay the dough out and put a heaping tablespoon of apricot jelly at the thick end (you can also use any type of jelly you like)

roll the dough up as directed

egg wash them lightly and bake

When they come out dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
