These cookies are the Christmas cookies that my mom makes every holiday season. These are whipped cookies that are so soft they literally melt in your mouth. You will love them!
This is the shortbread recipe that our family has been making for decades. They were part of the birthday cake spread that always included Nanaimo bars, turtles, and mommy’s buttermilk pies. Christmas wouldn’t be the same without them.
These shortbread cookies are incredibly moist. When we say it melts in your mouth, we mean it. No need to chew. These are the softest shortbread cookies you will ever eat. As one of our taste testers put it, “I don’t know what just went into my mouth, but I want more.”
This shortbread recipe contains only 5 ingredients, is made in one pot, and is the best shortbread you will ever eat. Is it sold out? You should be!
°3 cups of all-purpose flour
