  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in flour by hand until the dough is smooth. Extra flour can be added if the dough is not stiff enough to roll out.
  3. On a floured surface, roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire cooling racks.

This recipe worked great. I used my KitchenAid mixer, and used the dough hook for the kneading part, and only 2 cups of flour as stated. I did use cold butter, as someone stated previously. T...

This is very easy to make, however, I wasn't too pleased with the flavor. It was sort of plain. It rolled out easily and baked up nicely, but just didn't have that shortbread flavor I was look...

Far easier and faster than my usual recipe. Family wanted it a bit sweeter, added 3 more tablespoons of sugar with the second batch. They loved them! Thank you!

Basic ingredients for a basic shortbread cookie. They tasted absolutely fantastic and melted in your mouth when they were still warm, but after they cooled a few minutes later, the cookies did n...

A very simple and yummy recipe. COLD butter helps quite a bit. With a little extra sugar, they taste just like store bought English shortbread biscuits. Very yummy.
