Easy & Melt In Your Mouth Shortbread Cookies

I have whined in the past about my chocolate chip cookie mishaps.  I agree that my expectations of how a chocolate chip cookie should look like and taste may be unreasonable. But I did not want to give up on cookies altogether so I reviewed a few recipes, and decided to give shortbread cookies a shot (4 ingredients!).  The recipe looked simple enough. And you know what, I had a lot of fun playing around with shapes and toppings.  I even got to use some of the strawberry jam I made last week.IMG_0261

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
2. Whip butter with an electric mixer until fluffy. Stir in the confectioners’ sugar, cornstarch, and flour. Beat on low for one minute, then on high for 3 to 4 minutes. Drop cookies by spoonfuls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Watch that the edges don’t brown too much. Cool on wire racks.

  1. Oh wow! The cookies look adorable, and I love the simplicity of the recipe. I’ll have to try it with my nieces, maybe over the holiday season. Need to pick up some yummy jam from the supermarket. ^.^
