There are just TWO WEEKS until Christmas! I am both SO EXCITED and SO RUSHED because I have so much to squeeze in. Bake exchange at work, baking for family dinners, baking my favourites for ME to snack on! Shortbread is my all time favourite Christmastime snack, especially because it’s so easy to make on a whim with ingredients you almost certainly already have!
And with chocolate chips and sprinkles, even happier!
What you need:
1 cup of Butter – room temperature
1/2 cup Icing Sugar – sifted
1 1/2 cup of Flour
1/4 cup Cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla
1/2 cup of Chocolate Chips and/or Sprinkles (I choose to add both for extra colour!)
How to make them:
1. Preheat oven to 325°F and grease cookie sheets
2. With an electric blender mix the butter and icing sugar until quite fluffy. Then add in the flour, cornstarch, salt, and vanilla until everything is combined. Hand mix your chocolate chips and sprinkles.
3. Scoop your dough out with a spoon (balls should be about golf ball sized) onto your greased cookie sheets, and flatten with a fork. Add extra sprinkles to the top. The recipe makes ~36 cookies
4. Bake for 15 minutes. Cookies just be just barely golden when you pull them out of the oven. Let them cool (if you can!)
These cookies are so fluffy and yummy. I personally like to throw them in the freezer and think they taste even better somehow when they are chilly. Enjoy! xox
