Those of you who couldn't make the Geist christmas party can still get a taste of the scrumptious cookies that we ate there.
AnnMarie's Family's Shortbread Cookies
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla powder
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp corn starch
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the sifted dry ingredients and mix until ingredients come together into a ball. (At this point, you can refrigerate or freeze the dough to use later. I sometimes form the dough into a cylinder, wrap and freeze. Then if I want just one cookie, I can slice it off and bake it—yum.)
Roll and cut with cookie cutters. Bake until the edges of the cookies are golden.
