Shortbread. Who doesn’t love it? And now you can make it in no time at all–the most challenging part will be holding the electric beaters. Honest. Holiday baking does not have to be hard.
I spent a day baking with my friend Lianne and we made these at about 9:30 pm–after a long day of sparkles and sugar cookie mayhem with cookie meister Felix. We almost decided it was just too late–and then suddenly they were done. And being eaten at a pace where our metabolism didn’t stand a chance.
So thank you Ruth Krohnert, here is the recipe for “Melt in Your Mouth” Shortbread.
Only one additional tip–depending on your oven you might want to check these at about 17-18 minutes. You want them to remain pale white.
And you can make much cooler sprinkle colours (Martha Stewart cool) than the store-bought–just follow Ruth’s instructions.
Now, I’m not saying they are the most beautiful shortbread ever, I am sayin’ they’re bloody delicious.
So now that you have that all set, look at some of our sugar cookies. Here is Felix making his masterpiece:
And ok, I made these and do think they are kind of cute (yes, 2 out of the 30 I decorated made it to CUTE).
Have a great weekend and I have two great posts coming up from Kelsie Parsons…..stay tuned.
