A super easy shortbread recipe that bakes up some terrific tasting Old Fashioned Shortbread Cookies just like Grandma made!
Christmas baking was a lot more entertaining when my friend Wanda came over to bake her family recipe for Old Fashioned Shortbread Cookies. While sipping on some Cosmopolitans and playing festive Holiday tunes we proceeded to make a mess of my kitchen making these awesome shortbread cookies. Her family has been making this amazing shortbread recipe for 3 generations.
This shortbread cookie recipe is so easy to make with only 4 ingredients! It is a great recipe for using decorative cookie presses, topping with candied decorations or maraschino cherries.
