MELT IN YOUR MOUTH SHORTBREAD COOKIES

These Melt in Your Mouth Shortbread Cookies are the shortbread cookies my mom has made for Christmas every year since I was a child. They literally melt in your mouth. You will LOVE them!

The first time I shared these shortbread cookies with you was back in December 2011. I’ve made them every year since and this time I thought I would take some new pictures and share them with you again. It’s my all-time favorite Christmas cookie recipe, followed closely by my mom’s nanaimo bar recipe.

These shortbread cookies are crazy soft. When I say they melt in your mouth, I mean it. No chewing required. They’re the most tender shortbread cookies you will ever eat. I just passed one to my handsome man and his response was, “Damn, woman. I don’t know what just happened in my mouth, but I want more of it.”

This shortbread cookie recipe has only 5 ingredients, is made in one bowl, and is the best shortbread you will ever eat. Are you sold? You should be!

 

Ingredients:

1/4 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 cup butter, softened

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Whip butter with an electric mixer until fluffy. Stir in the confectioners’ sugar, cornstarch, and flour. Beat on low for one minute, then on high for 3 to 4 minutes. Drop cookies by spoonfuls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Watch that the edges don’t brown too much. Cool on wire racks.
