Scottish Shortbread Cookies
I think I've found the perfect shortbread cookie recipe. They were so easy to make, too.
Recipe from Taste of the South cooking magazine (one of my must have cooking magazines) courtesy of Lynda Borden
1 cup salted butter softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 300
In a large bowl combine butter and sugar-beat until light and fluffy, approx 4 minutes.
Add flour stir til combined.
Pat dough into 13x9 inch pan or shortbread mold.
Bake until light golden brown 30-40 minutes.
Remove from oven. Pierce with a fork all over in a zigzag pattern to allow steam to escape.
Cut into bars while still warm, cool in pan.
These are so easy and so good. My friend's son told me he wants them for his birthday.
