GG's Shortbread Cookies
Ingredients30 m servings 141 cals
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Beat butter, 1 1/2 cup white sugar, and confectioners' sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; mix in cornstarch and 2 cups flour. Make a well in the center of the dough; add egg and mix well. Knead the remaining 1 cup flour into dough using your hands until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
- Roll dough into walnut-sized balls. Pour 1/4 cup white sugar into a bowl; dip top of each ball in sugar. Arrange balls on a baking sheet. Slightly flatten each ball using the bottom of a drinking glass.
- Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Even the snobbiest of shortbread snobs loved these when I made them. The only changes I made were using 1/2 cup cornstarch instead of 1 cup, and 3 1/2 cups of flour instead of 3 cups. Also knock...
Looked good but had a weird aftertaste. My husband liked and that's all that mattered to me. I was making them for him. I added a Hershey's Kiss to top of each one.
It turned out more like a sugar cookie than a traditional shortbread. Paul Hollywood was unimpressed.
these were a big hit. Loved the ease of the recipe and the resulting smiles on my family faces when they ate them
