I am making cut out shortbread cookies using a heart shaped cookie cutter, but the dough won't stick together! I made the dough last night and it has been chilling in the fridge over night. How can I make the cookies stick together with out really loosing that shortbread texture?

Thank you!

sounds like there isnt enough butter/ too much flour in the recipe. Try bringing some of the dough to room temperature and incorporating some softened butter to get the right consistancy

Why is my shortbread dry? It's buttered, flaky, but has a dry mouth feel. It is very white, not browned at all. Suggestions?

I have to ask first Kathy if you have made or tasted shortbread before? It is a drier style cookie however it does all depend on the recipe. If you post your recipe and the instructions used as well as if you have a picture of your cookies that would be great, then we can get to the bottom of your issue. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif
