This is my first attempt at making shortbread cookies. I love the fact that all you I are three ingredients.
Come on, let's make this...
You have these ingredients in your kitchen I'm sure. I added almond extract but you could add vanilla or just go with the three main ingredients.
1 C softened butter
1/2 C sugar
2 tsp almond extract (the real stuff)
2 1/2 C flour
Then, add the flour in thirds. Mix to combine with your wooden spoon. It will take some time to combine it all. Once all the flour is incorporated, dough will be stiff.
Now, make some tea. Place some cookies on a saucer. Get comfy on your couch with a book or a movie, and enjoy this yummy treat.
