Shortbread Cookies

Hi! We are already on recipe number three from Cemaco’s Kitchen and Table Catalog. This time, let’s have something sweet. These classic Shortbread Cookies are just too cute not to bake. Not only we got to prepare the dough on the always reliable KitchenAid, but we got to use some new cookie cutters by SiliKoMart. We cannot tell you how much we loved using these cute cookie cutters. They come in three different shapes: rectangle, circle and heart. They come with a great embossing design that makes this cookie picture ready, even if you are not adding sanding sugar, sprinkles or something more elaborate.

We also tested out  their 16-inch rolling-pin, and we are hooked. Rolling out the dough was a breeze. Our only recommendation is that you can dip the cookie cutter in a bit of flour, avoiding the cookie dough to sticking to the cookie cutter. Do this every 4 or 5 cookies. After you’ve cut all the cookies, transfer them to a baking sheet and add the sprinkles or sanding sugar. We baked half with sanding sugar, and half without. Both batches were equally cute and delicious.

Classic Shortbread Cookies

If you have a Sugar Cookie fan at home, these Classic Shortbread Cookies are going to be a hit. Since I made the cookie dough ahead of time, it was just a matter of thawing it correctly (moved down from the freezer to the fridge overnight) and baking them the morning of Christmas eve. I popped them in the oven, and as soon as they started baking my dad came around and got their scent. He thought that they were regular Sugar Cookies! But by the time he tried them, he was hooked! I have to say that these cookies have been one of the best ones I’ve baked – and the ones that I’ve got great feedback from too.
