Welcome to Day 3 of my Christmas Cookie Countdown. I’ll be posting a different Christmas Cookie recipe every day from now until Christmas. If you miss any days, just look for the posts labeled Christmas Cookie Countdown. Today’s cookie is Shortbread Cookies. Shortbread is proof that a few simple ingredients mixed together can make something magical.
1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
Cream butter in bowl. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add flour, stirring until well blended. Pat into 4 circles on cookie sheet pricking with a fork or roll into small balls and press with a cookie stamp. Bake at 325 for 25 minutes for large circles or 15 minutes for smaller cookies.
