Shortbread question

Is the recipe for rolled out shortbread cookies the same as for shortbread pressed into a tin and baked as one large round?

Sarahb5, I use the same recipe for both. I always use my UK Be-ro book recipe.

My preference is for a crumbly mixture for the big whole version - the biscuit type s a bit too smooth and buttery. I'll have to see if I can find my old recipe. The biscuits I just made are crisp and buttery - they're delicious but not what I'm wanting

short bread that is rolled and cut is different to the base you make for slices which are you wanting

Neither - shortcake base for slices isn't shortbread because it has raising agent in it. What I'm looking for is the crumbly shortbread like the scots call petticoat tails
