Short Bread Cookies

Today I have decided to do my Christmas baking.  This recipe for Shortbread was given to me by my neighbor in late 70.

I have tried a few other recipes but found this to be the best.

Shortbread Cookies


  • 2                 cups Butter
  • 1                 cup Berry Sugar
  • 4-1/4         cups all purpose flour


  1. Cream butter and sugar till light and creamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Gradually add the flour.  Turn this onto a floured surface and kneed till it cracks (about 20 minutes).
  3. Divide dough into 4 parts.
  4. Roll each quarter to 1/4 thickness.
  5. Cut in shapes with a cookie cutter.
  6. Put the cookies 1” apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake in a preheated 300 degrees oven for 20 – 25 min.
