The big disclaimer here is that this recipe is actually my hubbies! Back when we were dating my Mom had told him how much she loved shortbread cookies. He surprised her (and me) when he gave her a big plate at Christmas time. The recipe had been given to him by one of his Mother’s Co-workers. He shared it with me and it has become our little holiday tradition.

Probably the best part about this recipe is 3 ingredients and very little work!

  1. 1 ½ Cup All Purpose Flour
  2. ½ Cup icing sugar
  3. 1 Cup of softened butter
  1. Preheat your oven to 325F.
  2. Using a stand mixer whip your butter on medium setting for about 1 min. Add in the flour and icing sugar and whip for about 3 min on medium or low setting (just until the dry ingredients are blended into the butter.) Turn the setting up to high and whip for another 8 min scraping the edges every so often. Spoon batter onto cookie sheets about 1 inch around and about an inch between cookies; if you want to get fancy you can use a cookie press or my method is to use an icing bag and tip and pipe flower shapes. Place into oven and bake for 5-7 minutes until the bottoms start to turn a nice golden colour. Remove and let cool. I like to lightly sprinkle with red and green sprinkles or place silver edible dragees in the centre if they are piped flowers. Do this while warm if you wish, it helps the sprinkles and dragees stick.
  3. Serve and Enjoy!
