Real Deal Irish Shortbread Cookies
I was given this recipe many years ago by a little old Irish woman I know. It far surpasses any other shortbread I have ever eaten, even after a trip to Ireland! Melt in your mouth delicious!
butter (5 sticks), room temperature (use real thing for true taste!)
Mix all ingredients together to form a soft ball.
Roll into small balls and press with down with a fork. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Or the dough may be pressed into a pan and then after baking sliced into bars or triangles.
Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for about 12 min. Shortbread should not brown, but just begin to slightly loose the whiteness.
