For the sake of convenience, we have a recipe for extremely Easy 3-Ingredient Shortbread Cookies, but this recipe for a more classic variation is top notch! You might appreciate our Butter Cookies if you like the mild flavor and crumbly texture of these.
What’s not to like about these buttery, delicious shortbread cookies that melt in your mouth? It Only Takes A Couple Of Simple Ingredients!
2 cups softened butter
1 cup sugar (white)
vanilla extract (two teaspoons)
4 cups flour (all-purpose)
as needed 1-2 tablespoons milk
Preheat the oven to 350 . Cream the sugar and butter together in a large mixing basin until light and creamy.
Blend in the vanilla extract until smooth. Mix in the flour until it forms a dough.
As needed, add more milk until the dough is the consistency of play dough.
Fill a cookie press halfway with dough. To make the cookies, place the cookie press on an ungreased, unlined baking sheet and push down.
Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom.
