Old Fashioned Shortbread Cookies - 6 Ingredients. Old Fashioned Shortbread Cookies - 6 Ingredients
1 Cup Butter (melted = 2 sticks or 1/2 pound)
1 Cup Powdered Sugar (save a little for sprinkling on after if you want)
1/4 Cup Cornstarch
1/8 tsp Sea Salt
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cup Flour
Melt Butter and then Add Powdered Sugar and beat until all lumps are gone
Add in Vanilla and Salt , then mix 1/2 flour and cornstarch beat on Medium , you can do by hand also.
Wrap in Wax Paper and chill in fridge for 1/2 hour to 3 hours depending on time you have, you can also freeze up to 2 weeks and bake later.
You can omit Vanilla , Cornstarch, and Salt if you want but this is how I make them and everyone says they are the best they have ever had, so you decide.
Bake at 350F for about 15 min. but time may shorten as oven heats so check often , they should have slightly brown edges only underneath not on top , be careful to not over bake.
Recipe will yield about 2 dozen cookies depending on the size of cookies you want, you could get 3 dozen if they are cut outs like the hearts you see I did.
Option sprinkle powdered sugar on 1/2 of batch if you want.
