Shortbread is one of my favorite desserts to enjoy.  It’s so buttery and rich, you don’t need too much to satisfy that sweet tooth!  Did I mention there are only 3 ingredients in shortbread?!  How awesome is that.  If you haven’t had a good shortbread, you have got to try it.

Get your butter, flour, sugar and enjoy some sinful shortbread!

You’ll cream your butter and sugar then add your flour.

Once cooled, I like to cut off 1/2 inch around each side.  Totally optional, just makes squares more the same size/shape 🙂
