      The name of the recipe comes from the Martha White ingredient – called cotton country shortbread mix. Carol

      The formula was written specifically for Creeping Charlie weeds. I have not tried it on other weeds, but I do have a vinegar weed killer that should work.

      Using one image is fine with a link back to my blog. Please do not copy the recipe or list the ingredients for it on your blog, though. Carol
