Mae’s Shortbread

Mae’s shortbread is a recipe that my mom received from a close friend when I was a kid.  My mom took the recipe and made it into a special treat for holidays.  I remember coming home from school to the smell of this buttery treat close to Christmas.  She’d meticulously cut out shapes of birds, bells and trees.  These days I just roll the dough in a log and cut into disks for when  I need a quick treat for friends and family.

Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup butter

1/2 cup icing sugarMae's Shortbread

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.  Cream butter and icing sugar and then mix into dry ingredients just until mixed.  Do not over mix dough as it will make the cookies tough.

Use a piece of  parchment paper to roll a cookie log. Chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Remove from fridge and cut in slices.

Bake on an un-greased cookie sheet at 325 degrees Fahrenheit until bottoms are golden brown.

Move to a wire rack and cool before serving.

Try serving these cookies with  Strawberry Lemonade
