My Dad loves shortbread cookies...he usually only gets them at Christmas time. And although I am sure he would like to keep them all to himself, he always shares. That's what I love about my dad. He always gives what he can, even when its his most favorite cookie. So for Father's Day I have attempted to make some shortbread cookies for him. The recipe is undeniably simple and they turned out super cute. So here's hoping he likes them!
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Cream butter and brown sugar. Add 2 to 2 1/4 cups flour. Mix well.
- Sprinkle board with the remaining flour. Knead for 5 minutes, adding enough flour to make a soft dough. Roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into 3x1 inch strips. Prick with fork and place on ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes.
