READY IN: 45mins




  • You Will Need:
  • large mixing bowl.
  • electric mixer.
  • measuring cups.
  • measuring spoons.
  • medium mixing bowl.
  • fork.
  • extra flour for dusting.
  • rolling pin.
  • cookie cutters.
  • metal spatula.
  • cookie sheet.
  • extra sugar for sprinkling.
  • oven mitts.
  • Preheat the oven to 350*.
  • In the large mixing bowl, cream the butter with the electric mixer until it is soft, smooth and fluffy.
  • Add the icing sugar, a little at a time, and beat until smooth.
  • Measure and add the flour, salt, and baking powder to the medium mixing bowl. Mix with the fork.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until well mixed.
  • Dust the rolling pin and a clean place on the counter with the extra flour. Turn the dough onto the floured surface and roll it out into a large circle - about 1/4 inch thick.
  • With the cookie cutters, cut the dough into any shapes you like.
  • With the metal spatula, lift the shortbreads onto a greased cookie sheet. Place them about 1/2 inch apart. Prick each shortbread twice with a fork and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake the shortbreads for 20 - 25 minutes until they turn light brown around the edges.
  • With oven mitts, remove the cookie sheet from the oven. With the metal spatula, immediately lift the shortbreads onto a plate.
