Every year I try and bake some cookies to give away to friends and family, and this year was no different. In fact, I tend to make extra shortbread during the holiday season and keep it in the freezer, so that makes it especially easy and excuse free to make!
My favorite shortbread recipe comes from Martha Stewart. It comes out perfectly every, single time. With some other recipes, I’ve found that there is not enough butter and I’ve created sand rather than a buttery ball of dough. I also had some leftover strawberry frosting from my daughters cake the other day too (strawberry purée, 2 sticks of butter and lots of confectioners sugar and a splash of vanilla).
My little assistant fully enjoyed the process, and we are off to deliver our gifts.
