Scottish Shortbread Cookies
I can't believe I am this busy at work in this festive month of December, a month which has been full of sinfully good treats! All the female co-workers are baking and baking and baking! And the end products end up on their desks, emails going out to come and grab the goodies before they disappeared! I refrain myself from baking and bringing the treats to work as so many of them are coming in! We are almost up to our neck with all the buttery, sugary and floury stuff!
Well, one in particular has caught my attention. I've made shortbread cookies before, I've had shortbread cookies before. But nothing was like this. These shortbread cookies were divine, melt-in-your-mouth wonders! I had to get the recipe I thought. I asked my co-worker and kindly, she obliged. Now, this is such a simple recipe, I thought. I've got all the ingredients it requires right in my fridge and pantry, so gotta make it!
Yes, I made these cookies and my family fell in love with it. The buttery taste is just amazing. It is something you need to brighten up your spirit before, during or after holidays. I am seeing myself making this over every Christmas for sure!
See how easy it is!
1 ½ cups butter
¾ cups sugar
1 ½ cups flour
½ cup corn starch
1 tsp.vanilla essence
Mix well. Put into a 8 or 9 inch glass pan. (Anything other than a metal pan)
