Cookies yes, Shortbread no
Schar's gluten-free shortbread cookies are pretty good as just cookies. They are sweet and crunchy and pretty light, although they do seem to leave a somewhat sandy feeling in your mouth. However, I would not classify them as shortbread. When I think of shortbread, I think of a buttery, sugary heavier cookie. These cookies lack that rich buttery flavor and the heavier texture characteristic of shortbread. Overall, I can't decide whether or not I like them. Flavor is good, sandy aftertaste is bad....
