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.

    Thanksgiving is such a great holiday. I, too, enjoy family time and food. And I find it so much fun to host!

    This looks really yummy! We are somehow out of ice cream but have fresh cranberries in the house, so may have to reverse things with this recipe!

    I may not be the best at making this wonderful ice cream, but I bet that I’m the best to eat them up because I’m a big fan of ice cream. Thanks Jen for sharing.
