Butter ShortBread Cookies

These cookies are so delicious. I like that there are a vary of ways to make them too. Different shapes and sizes. Since I made bite size cookies,  I ate 20 or so before I even knew it. They are so good!

2 Sticks butter or margarine (Room Temp)

1 c Powder Sugar

1 tsp Vanilla

2 c Flour

1/4 tsp Salt

1 Tbs Milk

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. I use my Kitchen Aid for this recipe.

Place dough in a pastry bag with a large star tip. Pipe the cookies on to a silicone mat lining your cookie sheet. No more than 24 cookies to a medium size cookie sheet.


Bake 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees. The edges of the cookies should be a golden brown color.


I think these cookies are so good! They are easy to make. You can shape them how you like too! My mom made these as sticks and dipped the ends in chocolate then chopped up peanuts. Yum!
