Tea and cookie

My Quick & Easy Shortbread Cookies

  • 1 cup butter (or margarine)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • Optional: lemon zest, lime zest, cinnamon or chai spices, etc.

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter, gradually adding icing sugar. Mix the flour, salt and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add it to the butter/icing mixture. Roll out the dough on a floured surface, and cut into shapes as desired. Bake 10-15 minutes or until lightly brown.


Happy Monday!
