Shortbread Recipe

This recipe is a simple take on the Scottish classic, shortbread.


1 cup of butter
1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and the sugar. Slowly add the flour and salt, mixing well. Roll out dough with a rolling pin until it is 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place on cookie sheet and prick with a fork.
3. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, or until light brown at the edges.
