A shortbread cookie is possibly the simplest cookie ever. It has just 3 basic ingredients–flour, sugar, butter–combined in a perfect ratio. And who knew something so simple could taste so good?
When I first began baking our brown sugar shortbread cookies, I quickly discovered that ‘addictive’ did not begin to describe these cookies. No matter how many batches of cookies I would bake–they would ALL disappear. All. Each and every one. And despite the fact that shortbread can be stored for days in an airtight container and be just as good as it was on day one–that has never been a problem at my house. They never last past day one.
Thus–every retail bag of our shortbread cookie mixes contain 2 complete recipes. One to bake and share, and one to hide–or hoard. We’ll never tell. Enjoy!
