Butter + Sugar = yummy shortbread cookies!


I wanted something sweet, and as always I work with the cupboard essential before payday to clear up the cupboards before doing groceries (helps the keep stuff from piling up, since I don’t know when we’ll  move). I had milk, butter, sugar…. i had also had baking powder but no eggs. So I looked up a super simple recipe and came up with Shortbread Cookies!

3/4 lbs Butter (or margarine)

Add 1 cup sugar.

Mix until blended.

Add 1 tsp vanilla. Beat. Then sift 3.5 cups flour and 1/4 tsp salt into the butter/sugar and mix until dough comes together.

Roll it up, cover in plastic and refrigerate.

30 minutes later roll it out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out cookies with a cookie cutter or anything else on hand. Ta-da!

Put them on a cookies sheet and sprinkled with sugar. Put them in preheated 350 degree oven for 18-20 minutes until edges are brown.
