My step dad loves this recipe for shortbread cookies and I agree they’re both delicious and addictive (translation: fattening). If you enjoy this recipe, also take a look at my mom’s cinnamon shortbread square recipe.
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Mix butter and sugar in large bowl. Stir in flour. If dough is crumbly, mix in 1-2 tbsps of extra butter)
3. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick on lightly floured surface. Cut into shapes by hand. Place 1/2 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake about 20 minutes or until set. Remove from sheet to let cool.
