      This is my first ever attempt at making a true shortbread and it was the best ever recipe for a first timer!
      The only problem I had was my oven timer did not work and they overcooked just a little before I realised.......but apart from that this recipe still tasted awesome!
      DD has never like shortbread let alone ginger, and she loved them....DS hates ginger and he loved this........... DD, well if it has nuts in it, its a winner for him.
      Will be making this again Pat, so easy and such a beautiful rich and buttery shortbread.

      Great recipe- easy to make and 5 delicious stars from my husband. Made as written. I think this would be a great gift to make for a Christmas gift for anyone who loves a good shortbread. Macadamia and Buderim ginger...couldn't be any more Aussie flavoured shortbread than that. I had trouble getting the frill on the edge...but in the end it really isn't needed. Baked for approx 45 minutes in my oven. Photo also to be postedReviewed for Make my Recipe Tag Game in the Aus/NZ Forum
