Shortbread Cookies

These are the best melt in mouth butter blasting shortbread cookies that I have made . This recipe is so simple, no way that anyone could go wrong.........................sure a treat to bake.

Ingredients:

  • 2butter sticks(1cup) at room temperature
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2tsp.vanilla extract

Method:

  • Sift four, cornstarch, sugar together and keep it aside. Cream butter, vanilla until light and fluffy, then add the sifted dry ingredients to butter in few batches; blend smooth with mixer until they are mixed well. Refrigerate dough 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 300F. Make 1'' balls, place then on ungreased cookie sheet; flatten lightly with fork. Chill the cookies for 5-10min., then bake for about 20-25min., or until slightly brown.

These cookies are on their way to Sara's "Cookies n Cakes" Event. and to "Cakes and Cookies" event by Indian Vegetarian Kitchen.

Dear Prasu
I can assure you , no one can go wrong if she/he follows your process..I can cook all your dishes without any confusion ha ha
I am going into baking from New Year.
SOMEONE has taken great interest again ( she used to be a great baker!!! my job will be to go to the market and get the ingredients because I am not allowed to use the Micro/convective oven for any purpose. ( Of course the old OTG is in my custody..Ha ha
This cookie is very tasty I can say that now.
Happy New year to you and family
