Shan's Shortbread Cookies

easy shortbread cookies

I had a friend in high school whose mom baked the most wonderful goodies.  When we went to Shan's house, there was always something delicious waiting on the kitchen counter.

One of my favorites was her shortbread cookies, and I love them so much I actually learned to make them myself.  They freeze really well, so I usually make a double or triple batch.  Mixing with your hands works best as the batter is really thick.


Shan's Shortbread Cookies

1 pound butter
1 cup sugar
5-5 1/2 cups flour

Mix all ingredients together.  Start with 5 cups flour, and add until batter is thick but not crumbly.  Spread into a tall cookie sheet.  Cut into squares, dot with a fork, and sprinkle sugar on top.  Bake at 325 degrees until slightly brown (about 7-10 minutes).


Happy Weekend everyone!
