Buttery delicious Shortbread Cookies are an easy cookie recipe that you only need five ingredients to make! These cookies literally melt in your mouth and are perfect any time of year, but especially during the holidays.
These are such a classic and you are going to want to make a batch for all your cookie platters!
I love to get fancy with cookies and add all the frosting, sprinkles, and decorations, but when it comes to shortbread, I keep it simple! These rich and buttery cookies are amazing just as they are – no extra bells and whistles required!
If you’ve ever had a bite of a homemade shortbread cookie, you already know what to expect – a crumbly, buttery, rich cookie that melts in your mouth. If you’ve never made them yourself, you’re in for a pleasant surprise because they are simple to make.
This classic shortbread recipe is my favorite. They might look like basic cookies, but they have the most fantastic flavor and the perfect shortbread texture.
Make a batch and treat yourself to one (or two or three…) along with a cup of coffee or tea. Or make a batch to give away – they are perfect for the holidays or any time you want to make someone’s day.
