Easy Shortbread Cookies Recipe

Cook Time: 40 minutes // refrigerate: 2 hours

|

Servings: 36 big cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 3 cups flour
  •   royal icing

Preparation

  1. Cream butter until fluffy.
  2. Beat in sugar and add vanilla.
  3. Mix in sifted cornstarch and flour until well combined.
  4. Split soft dough in to 2 equal portions. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 375F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  6. Use a lightly floured surface (or powdered sugar, as adding too much flour can make the cookies too dense) and roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut out the desired shapes, then place them on baking sheet at least 1/2 inch apart.
  7. Bake 15-20 minutes; they should be lightly browned around the edges. Let cool, before icing!
