How to Make Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cream butter and sugar together.
  • 2Gradually stir in flour.
    Knead until smooth.
  • 3Pat into a 1/3 inch thick rectangle (8 inches x 11 inches).
    I do this on one of my large cutting boards.
  • 4Now cut dough into 1 inch x 2 inch strips.

    Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • 5With a fork, prick the top of each cookie in 3 places to make a little design common in shortbread cookies.
  • 6Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookie begins to brown.
  • 7Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, and then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 8Enjoy! These are really tasty!
