Three-Ingredient Shortbread Cookies
This recipe is so easy and so tasty! You can dip half the cookie in chocolate once they have cooled completely. I have made these for Christmas cookies by dipping in chocolate and sprinkling with pecans. I have also used pink chocolate for baby showers.
- Serves: 20 persons
- 1cup butter, softened
- ½cup superfine sugar
- 2cups all-purpose flour
Step 1Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a 9-inch square pan with foil, leaving an overhang on all sides.
Step 2Mix butter and sugar together with a spoon until texture is sandy. Slowly mix in flour. Knead dough a few times until crumbly, not smooth. Pat dough over the bottom of the prepared pan. Prick all over with a fork.
Step 3Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 45 minutes. Score with a knife while still warm. Lift out foil and let cookies cool on a baking rack. Break apart on cut lines when completely cooled.
