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
