Shortbread Cookies

Shortbread Cookies are a classic cookie that is often overlooked. I was always the weird one who ordered a box of shortbread cookies while others were ordering caramel delights and thin mints. I had no idea making Shortbread Cookies was so easy. Three simple ingredients come together in just a few minutes. You could be enjoying a Shortbread Cookie about 20 minutes after you print this recipe.

My sister thought these would be better with some sprinkles on them. In fact, she rolled some of her Snickerdoodles in sparkly sprinkles and we dubbed them Sparkledoodles. But I digress. I do agree that these could be made even more festive by rolling the edges in some sprinkles.

    I made these for food day at the office and they were a huge hit. I used the 9 x 13 pan and an entire bag of mini-marshmallows. Everyone agreed they got better each day.
