The Time I Made Shortbread

My love for shortbread knows absolutely no limits. It’s buttery (especially when I make it), but light enough that you can eat a few pieces, and it still feels like a snack.

 

Over the holidays I decided to try my hand at it, and the results were marvelous!

What I learned:

1. Making shortbread is so simple, and so easy to do! And if you make a mix large enough, you can have shortbread cookies for days and days!

2. Shortbread dough can be a bit tough at times to work with. It is ESSENTIAL that your work space is well-floured before rolling out your dough. If it isn’t, you’ll constantly have to pull dough off your rolling pin. Trust me on this one. It’s sticky.

3. My life motto: The more butter, the better.

These little cookies were perfect for my afternoon tea party!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1  Cup Butter
  • 3/4  Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1  Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 1/2  Cups  All-purpose flour

Happy baking!
