And...we are taking another go around with the shortbread cookies.... The last ones we tried were fun, but really, REALLY crumbly....and since many broke before they were packaged up, more needed the be made.
So, today, we are going for a more traditional, solid shortbread cookie. And once again, ingreadients are simple: butter (a whole pound!!), cup of brown sugar, and nearly four cups of flour...
Once again, the handy mixer has been pulled from the sidelines and into action.
A big hunk of dough is mixed up and set out for shaping.
Dough is rolled out until about 1/2 inch think, then cut into squares (I used our circular pizza cutter), and then poked with a fork to get the dominoe-like dots....
In to the oven at 325 degrees F, for about 20 minutes
Cookies are then set on a rack to cool.
And then packaged up for the coming weekend of early gifting.
Happy crafting everyone!!
