Laura's Story

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!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Oh how I loved the buttery taste of this shortbread. These shortbread cookies will be a real treat for a mid afternoon pick me up with a cup of tea.

We used a 10x3 pan and had to bake these treats for about for 25 minutes.

Ingredients

3 c
flour
1 1/2 c
cornstarch
1 1/2 c
confectioners' sugar
2 1/2 c
butter (5 sticks), room temperature (use real thing for true taste!)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all ingredients together to form a soft ball.
2
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.
3
Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for about 12 min. Shortbread should not brown, but just begin to slightly loose the whiteness.
