I also thought that in the spirit of a fabulous Cookie Exchange, I’d share with you a quick and easy cookie recipe (in case the thought of baking scares you away from a Cookie Exchange) that I absolutely love and that you’ll likely already have all the items in your pantry already to make (I did at least).
Here’s an easy recipe for an Easy Shortbread Cookie that is sure to delight.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter until light and creamy. Add 1/2 cup sugar and beat until fluffy. Sift flour with the salt and baking powder and fold into butter mixture. Put dough on an unbuttered baking sheet and pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Mark the dough for cutting with the point of a knife. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and bake in center of oven for 15 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Cool for 15 minutes and then cut into bars. Note: I added Christmas M&M’s into recipe for some added fun.
And of course, while you’re making these super easy cookies, you need a little helper to assist. :)
Many thanks to Jamielyn for having us today and we hope your Cookie Exchanges go fabulously this year! If you use our Cookie Exchange prints and would like featured on our blog, please email me photos of your party at [email protected] We’d LOVE to show off your parties!
