Shortbread Cookies

20 MIN
24 servings



  1. Preheat the oven to 160 °C (325 °F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, cream the butter with the sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. In another bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Stir the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, using a fork. Shape into a ball.
  3. Divide the dough in half and roll out onto a floured surface. Cut with a 6-cm (2 ¼-inch) round or pattern cookie cutter. Place on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the highest position of the oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Right out of the oven, sprinkle with sugar. Cool on a wire rack.


Santa Claus can’t resist these cookies placed by the tree. Serve with a tall glass of milk!


  1. I have found, that by adding 1 tbsp of water, a little at a time, will help. Do not add too much.

  2. The dough turned all crumbled. It is impossible to form a ball and roll it. It’s like there is an ingredient missing.
