    I have been looking for a good shortbread recipe. This is it. The oils make it oh so very special and delicious. House smells super.

  • Lora

    I made these today and used Lemon EO. Unfortunately, they did spread out and few look like hearts. They taste good, though.

  • Tina Ciesla

    Love this recipe! These are so yummy! One word of advise….space these out on the cookie sheet because they will spread while baking.

  • Larissa Brantley

    What a great idea! I’m a newbie & I haven’t received my starter kit yet. I was thinking lavender vitality would be fun in these cookies & kinda “romantic”!

  • Karen Lange

    I think I will try Lemon Vitality! I was thinking Bergamot Vitality or Citrus Fresh Vitality would be good too. They are all in the Vitality Line Correct?

    • That’s right, Karen. Lemon Vitality, Bergamot Vitality and Citrus Fresh Vitality are all part of the Vitality line. They all sound like great Vitality essential oils to try with this recipe! Thanks for stopping by!
