Why Shortbread Cookies?
Well...recently we had our Civil War Club meeting
Everyone brought their favorite cookies for our annual
Boy, did we have cookies and lots of them...
The one that everyone seemed to really love...
was the delicate, simple and delicious
One of our ladies (Lee) that made the shortbread cookies shouted out the simple
3 ingredient recipe for us all.....but most of us didn't hear her.
So with Lee's permission and her suggestion to post it.
Here is the recipe...
2 Cups Flour
2 Sticks Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar (granulated)
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add flour slowly to creamed mixture
with spoon ( work with hands until it forms a ball). Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut out with favorite cookie cutter and prick holes in top of each cookie.
Bake at 350 about 10-15 minutes.
* I tried the recipe on Sunday and added 1 teas of vanilla ( optional).
My oven baked the cookies just right at 12 minutes ..so check your oven temp.
Enjoy this recipe and Thank You to Lee !
