Genuine Shortbread Cookies



When I was little, my mother bought Nabisco Shortbread cookies....nothing better in the world! I loved them with milk. Now, I love them with my coffee. They are fattening...what can I say, so I don't make these very often. When I do, I know I will need to stay on a steady diet for a week because I can't stop eating them. These also work if you want to make the square cookies a little bigger 3x3 and make ice cream sandwiches with them. That's what I'm talkin' about! However, they are wonderful alone.

How to Make Genuine Shortbread Cookies

Cut into squares or round (shape doesn't change taste, right?)and remove with a spatula to UNgreased cookie sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. (I would check them at 15 minutes to see if you need to bake them further. Don't over bake them.
