Shortbread cookies

Shortbread cookies are a favourite in my family, and I think for everyone’s family. It’s especially true at this time of year as we celebrate the holiday season by making and indulging in all manner of yummy treats.

The recipe I use is my grandmothers’, as is the pretty china plate you see in the photo above. It’s as simple as recipes get. I’ve changed it slightly to fit with my tastes using all organic ingredients and substituting whole wheat pastry flour for the normal all-purpose flour. All-purpose gluten-free flour can also be substituted here. These are delicious with a steaming cup of tea.

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups of wholewheat pastry flour

Mix together ingredients in a mixer or by hand until they form a smooth dough. Roll into 1-inch balls and flatten with a glass or cookie press. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden in a 325F oven. Makes about 24 cookies.
