THE BEST SIMPLE TWO WAY SHORTBREAD COOKIES

Today, in my house I am dedicating to baking these easy Christmas Cookies.  They always mark the start of Christmas.

Doesn’t matter if I make another type of Christmas cookie, a  bar cookie or even  a sugar cookie, shortbread is Christmas for us.

So to really get in the mood I slipped a little Christmas music into the cd player.

I must say no one better than Michael Bublè to croon out a few holiday tunes!  So sing-along I did. Unfortunately I can only dream about a white Christmas.



I love  Simple Shortbread Cookies, they practically melt in your mouth.  I always had a friend who said that her shortbread was the best and  made exactly how it should be made with only 3 ingredients,  butter, sugar and flour.

I would argue that my Mom made the best cookies and her’s had five ingredients. And yes I still stand by my Mom’s.

  3. Beat butter until creamy. Sift icing sugar, corn starch, salt and flour 4 times (I know, but it is worth it) add to creamed butter a little at a time and work in with a wooden spoon as long as possible, then move to a lightly floured flat surface and knead till mixture cracks slightly. Pat gently to 1/3" thickness. Cut with Christmas cutters and place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake in pre-heated oven for approximately 10-12 minutes, don't let them brown. Let cool on cookie sheets.
