Best Ever Shortbread Cookies

I believe there’s nothing more delightful than heavenly, melt-in-your mouth shortbread cookies at Christmastime! Such a treat.

I’d like to share our family recipe with you…


Mom-In-Law’s Famous Shortbread Cookies

1 lb salted butter, room temperature is best
2/3 cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
3½ cups white flour

Preheat oven to 300°F. Knead butter and sugars in one bowl, making sure butter is not melted. Then add the flour and knead again until it forms a roll-able dough. Sprinkle flour on a board and on to the rolling pin, roll the dough to about 3/8″ thick, cut to desired shapes. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake. “Watch like a hawk” until light golden brown, approximately 10-15 minutes.

The shortbread gets better with age, so make it now to enjoy at Christmastime.

PS: Make extra and send some to the person that gave you the recipe
PPS: Send lots!
