3-Ingredient Shortbread by
1½ cups salted butter, softened
1 cup confectioners sugar (icing sugar or powdered sugar)
3 cups all-purpose flour
½ cups salted butter, softened
confectioners sugar (icing sugar or powdered sugar)
s all-purpose flour
1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
2. Blend butter until smooth in a large bowl using an electric mixer set at medium speed. Slowly blend in the icing sugar. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and combine thoroughly. Add flour and mix at low speed until well blended.
3. Pat dough into an ungreased cookie sheet. Alternatively you can roll out the dough so that it's about ¼ of an inch in thickness and cut them to your desired shape. I placed parchment paper on my cookie sheet, but it's not necessary.
4. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until just done (slightly golden in color). Do not let it get brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with colored sugar or other sprinkles if desired. Cut into squares if you haven't pre-cut them and place cookie sheet on wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and enjoy!
