Shortbread Sugar Cookies

I found this awesome cookie recipe in our local paper years ago when I was in nursing school. I made these cookies and shared them with the nursing staff who hosted our clinicals. They all raved about them...but then the recipe disappeared. I came up with a similar version and found it works pretty well. Hope you like them too.

20 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1 c
butter
1/2 c
confectioners' sugar
1 1/4 c
sifted all purpose flour
3/4 c
cornstarch
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
vanilla

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix softened butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Add other ingredients and mix until well blended. Refrigerate dough until chilled. Roll out dough and use cookie cut-out shapes. Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet...(It's necessary b/c these cookies can be fragile when trying to lift off cookie sheet w/o parchment paper.)Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 to 15 min.

These cookies are really good with a glaze of powdered sugar, a little butter, lemon or lime juice and hot water. I like to put the glaze on fresh out of the oven. (These cookies freeze really well.)
