INGREDIENTS: 2 cups softened unsalted butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour 1 tbsp vanilla extract
STEP 1: mix softened butter, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl, then add flour one cup at a time
STEP 2: use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out your cookies (mine are William Sonoma snowflakes in various sizes)
STEP 3: bake in over at 350 degrees farenheit until the edges turn golden and the cookies are still soft and let them cool
STEP 4: take icing sugar (or powdered sugar with 3 tbsp corn starch) adding a spoon of milk at a time until it’s very thick liquid
STEP 5: ice them, decorate, let dry, and serve with cold milk!
This is a very simple cookie recipe I make all the time throughout the year with all my cookie cutters but particularly in the winter with my snowflakes! It’s a very simple traditional scottish shortbread with a bit of vanilla and a glaze icing that is pretty impossible to mess up. Maybe you will want to give it a try!
