Christmas Shortbread Cookie Recipe

Friday, December 20, 2013

Hi Everyone!! ;)

I am soooo excited. I'm about to fly home to spend Christmas with my family and there really isn't anything better than that! Also, I've got 2 great things for you in this post; my shortbread cookie recipe from the cookies I made last week and my Holiday GiveAway.... finally! But let's start with the cookies! Here is how mine turned out

And they were delicious too! MMMmmmm! My favourite cookie! My boyfriend and I made this together while we sipper hot, Marshmallow Swirl Hot Chocolate!!

Okay, so if you guys liked the look of these and you'd like to try them yourself (you really should, they are too good) then here is the recipe and remember: these should be eaten in 3 days otherwise they start to lose their amazing melt-in-your-mouth-ness and they have A LOT of butter. This means 2 things. The first we already know; they are DElicious. The second you can easily guess; they aren't the friendly to our hips...but it's Christmas, Enjoy!

Easy Shortbread Cookie Recipe
2 Cups of Butter, softened (you butter for best results)
1 cup of White Sugar
4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

     *Directions* 1.) Preheat over to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)
                           2.) Cream butter and sugar until fluffy
                           3.) Stir in vanilla
                           4.) Add flour, mix well
                           5.) If dough seems to sticky or moist to roll, gradually add 1/4 cup of
                                50/50 cornstarch and confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar).
                                Add more or less if as needed.
                           6.) Sprinkle flour on rolling surface and roll out dough to approx.
                                1/4 inch thick.

                           7.) Cut with cookie cutters
                           8.) Continue steps 6 and 7 until dough is used up.
                           9.) Place on ungreased cookie sheets and cook for 10 minutes.

And voila! Beautiful, yummy, Christmas shortbread cookies. This recipe makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.
