My husband's grandma has been making these delicious cookies for as long as he can remember. They are a family favorite and by far the best shortbread any of us have ever tasted. They're loaded with butter, dipped in sugar, and baked to a crispy perfection.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter, 1 1/2 cup white sugar, and confectioners' sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; mix in cornstarch and 2 cups flour. Make a well in the center of the dough; add egg and mix well. Knead the remaining 1 cup flour into dough using your hands until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls. Pour 1/4 cup white sugar into a bowl; dip top of each ball in sugar. Arrange balls on a baking sheet. Slightly flatten each ball using the bottom of a drinking glass.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Looked good but had a weird aftertaste. My husband liked and that's all that mattered to me. I was making them for him. I added a Hershey's Kiss to top of each one.
