Quick Shortbread Cookies


  • Author: A Foodie Affair

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare two large baking sheets lined with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add flour and continue to mix until mixture forms a soft dough (it will be crumbly at first, but keep mixing and it will form a dough). Form dough into a cohesive ball with your hands.
  3. Roll dough 1/4-inch thick on a surface dusted with flour or powdered sugar* with a well-dusted rolling pin. Cut into rounds and place on prepared baking sheets. Repeat as necessary.
  4. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until cookies are pale golden brown. Let cool on baking sheets.

Notes

Make sure to roll the dough out with confectioners sugar!
