shortbread circles.

z 286
Grab your ingredients, folks! Some tasty little treats were made over the weekend and this recipe I must share with you all. I LOVE shortbread. I LOVE cookies. These are a perfect combination of both. Plus they only have three ingredients, so the lazy part of me was happy, too! :)

Shortbread Circles

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup slightly softened butter

To Do:
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. :)

Enjoy, xo!
