These melt-in-your-mouth Scottish-inspired shortbread cookies are simple to make. Just 3 ingredients and they come out so light and buttery!
FLOUR SUGAR BUTTER
In a large bowl, whisk together flour and sugar. Add softened butter to dry ingredients and mix together using a fork until crumbly dough forms.
Roll the dough into a ball. Place dough ball onto a floured surface and roll out with a floured rolling pin. When dough is about 1/4″ thick, cut out your cookies using a flour-coated cookie cutter.
Lift cookies using a thin spatula and place onto a baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. Bake at 350˚ for about 8-9 minutes or until the edges show hints of golden brown.
Cookie cutters work great and you can cut out your shortbread in any shape so you get to be creative and can make these holiday themed if you want.
