I'm so excited to be taking part in the #BloggersBakeChristmasCookies link-up today! Shout-out to Katie and Juliana Grace for creating an awesome link-up! Anyways, today I'm sharing a super easy shortbred cookie recipe! The original recipe is here.
Here's what you'll need:
2 cups butter (salted)- cold and cut into pieces
1 cup brown sugar
4 1/2 cups flour
Feel free to halve this recipe- that's what I did!
Start by mixing together the butter and brown sugar using a hand or stand mixer until light and fluffy.
Add in 3 1/2 cups of flour and mix until it looks like it does above.
On a board, sprinkle some flour and knead dough. After, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Once the 30 minutes is over, pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees and roll out your dough. Use a cookie cutter (or just cut into rectangles) and place them on a cookie sheet (lined with wax paper) 2 inches apart.
Feel free to decorate them with sprinkles- unfortunately, the only ones I had were Easter themed. Then bake them for 15-20 minutes and then allow for them to cool!
