shortbread cookies.

i am going to get straight to the point, i have a major sweet tooth. sometimes i just look through pinterest at sweets & think about making them all day long.

my mom posted a picture of some cookies she made earlier today & i started thinking of things i needed to bake, bc my sweet tooth was yelling at me. so my next thought was what would cory like.

shortbread!  i found this recipe on pinterest & it is flawless.

even dolly was excited about it

so for starters you are going to put 2 sticks + 2 TB of butter in your mixer & beat for a few minutes.

add 1 cup + 2 TB of sugar & 1 1/4 tsp of salt- mix for a few minutes. 

scrape the sides & add 1 egg & beat for a few minutes. 

add 1 TB of vanilla (i used haitian vanilla) & 3 cups of flour. 

lightly flour a surface to work on 

i rolled mine out to  1/2 inch thick and then cut into cute little rectangles. 

i put them on a pan  & stuck them in the freezer for about 10 minutes & then put them into the oven for about 12 minutes or until they are lightly golden on the edges. 

look how yummy they look.

i am not going to say how many i ate, bc it is slightly embarrassing.
