“Only to be made at Christmas time, and in huge quantities.” - by Carl T. Erickson
Original recipe yields 2 dozen
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

"Simple, quick, and they disappear faster than I can make 'em! These don't crumble as easily as other recipes I've tried, and seem like they'd work well as decorated cut-outs (we ate them plain). I lik..." See moree my shortbread just a touch sweeter, so I added a couple tablespoons more sugar to the second batch--YUM! You could also sprinkle a little extra sugar on top before baking if desired. If it won't roll out well, try chilling it for about 30 minutes in the fridge first, especially if you didn't use cold butter. Or add a little more flour if it's sticky. I also suggest you use your (clean) hands to mix the dough, to get that perfect, smooth texture!"
"I found this to be exactly what I was looking for. I didn't feel like rolling and cutting them all out so I baked them like a bar and I added some crushed pecans! So Good!..." See more"
"This was a great recipe and held together nicely. I have never had much success with using a roll out dough (new to baking) and this went perfectly none of my rabbits lot an ear. They had good flavor ..." See moreand even held up in the cookie jar. The kids loved them. thank's for a great recipe."
