shortbread cookie

Found this awesome recipe on Pinterest. I was looking to make shortbread for Father's Day. 
link to original recipe: 3 ingredient shortbread recipe


1cup (2 sticks) softened butter
2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar 

Whip softened butter and sugar together till fluffy about a minute and then add flour in small quantity and knead to form dough..

Make small balls of dough, flatten and bake for 16-18 min at 350 degrees F. I did this and turned out perfect. If you wish to roll and cut cookies with cookie cutter, then use powdered sugar to avoid the dough sticking to rolling pin,  

this was first time I was making cookies, so I had difficulty rolling dough so I switched to making thumbprint cookies with chocolate chips.

This recipe is fabulous and cookies were loved by one and all!

Happy baking :)
