I made short bread cookies! They tasted great!

Here is the recipe:


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, microwave for 20 seconds
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Wisk together flour and salt. In a bowl, beat butter until fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Add sugar, and continue to beat until pale and fluffy, occasionally scraping down the sides of bowl, about 2 minutes more. Beat in vanilla. Add flour mixture, and mix on low speed, scraping sides if necessary, until flour is just mixed, and dough sticks together when squeezed with fingers.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll out 1 disk to a 1/4-inch thickness. Transfer unbaked cookies to prepared baking sheets. Reroll scraps. Repeat with remaining disk. Bake until firm and golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack before decorating or eating.


Cookies can be stored at room temperature for up to 1 month.
