This is my favourite shortbread cookie, and I always have the ingredients on hand. So simple to make and so delicious, it produces a very delicate shortbread that is sure to please.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine all ingredients and mix for a FULL 10 minutes.
  • Yes, I said a full 10 minutes!
  • Mixture will start out very dry and crumbly but will become batter like after the full 10 minutes.
  • I like to use my stand mixer for this, but a hand mixer will do the trick if it is a strong one.
  • Drop from teaspoons or a piping bag onto a cookie sheet, I find teaspoons work best.
  • Decorate with maraschino cherries or sprinkles if you feel fancy.
  • Bake for approx 15 minutes or until bottoms are very lightly brown.
  • Watch that the tops don't turn brown!

    325° is a better temperature for these.

    Either the baking time or oven temperature are off. There’s no way these won’t overbrown in 15 minutes. Even 12 left them with crispy edges. But I can work with it. A little mint oil and some chocolate chips made them a hit.

    Great recipe! Gave it 4 stars because there is a slight flour taste. I think a little more sugar and some vanilla or almond extract would fix it.

    Followed the recipe exactly and they were horrible. They totally crumbled when you would pick them up. Ended up scooping them into a container in a million crumbs to use for crumble topping on other things. Doubt I will try another recipe from this site.
