One of my favourite holiday cookies is shortbread. I enjoy the simplicity of flavours and the buttery texture these simple to prepare cookies have to offer. The shortbread cookies I made are rolled and flattened. The recipe calls for the dough to be rolled and cut into stars but I didn't have time to do all that. With a sprinkle of coloured sugar they look very festive indeed.
The texture is light, flaky and melt-in-the mouth. The shortbread is not overly sweet and would be a nice foil to more elaborate treats on a cookie tray. So when you're contemplating what cookies to make for your holiday gatherings, don't overlook the humble shortbread - it's a classic!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
