Shortbread Cookie Recipes

August 22, 2011

Shortbread cookies on a cookie sheet.My mom is 85 years young. Every Christmas she makes these cookies along with a few of her others. This shortbread recipe is delish! They melt in your mouth, and the recipe makes a large amount.


They keep well in the freezer if you don't eat them all first! Great with a cuppa tea or coffee.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream butter and egg yolk together. Add dry ingredients, then mix all together well will become a slightly stiff dough. With your hands, roll into 1 inch balls and flatten with a floured fork. Bake till golden brown.

For pecan and shortbread lovers. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix flour, sugar, butter, salt and pecans. Press dough evenly into the bottom of a greased 8x8 inch baking dish and bake until golden, about 30 to 35 minutes.

You can use any flavor of jam instead of raspberry if you would like to. My next favorite is apricot. Combine butter, sugar and almond extract in large bowl.

This is one of my favorite recipes because I am able to use my own organically grown lavender and mint. I was searching for recipes to use my lavender and came across this one for shortbread.
