Shortbread cookies don’t last long in my house. I really need to make shortbread more often. This batch didn’t even last the day and this batch made 2 1/2 dozen. I did add a chocolate drizzle and that made them look soooo good. Really, shortbread cookies do look a little boring unless they are dressed up a bit. For some reason, I seem to really, really like to add a little chocolate to my recipes when I make them in the afternoons. Yes, the little bit of chocolate I add just cheers me up!
These aren’t fancy cookies. They are traditional, no fuss cookies. That just taste good when you need that little something. And they don’t take long. You can be as fussy as you want. I didn’t even use a rolling pin when I made these. I just flattened and spread the dough by hand. One less thing to clean!
These shortbread cookies are perfect with a cup of coffee. Or, like my hubby, with your afternoon tea. I guess it’s the British background. Or maybe, just the Canadian background. Whatever it is, these are a great treat! The bonus is, they are easy to make and taste great!
