1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup slightly softened butter
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine all 3 ingredients at once and mix for 8 minutes. (Use a stand mixer if possible, or a strong hand mixer and spatula will also work.)
Mixture may be dry and crumbly to start, but will become more batter-like after mixing. (The photo above is after I mixed it up - looks like thick cake batter!)
Drop by slightly heaped teaspoons onto a parchment-covered cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned.
Makes about 36 tiny shortbread cookies. :)
