3 Ingredient Short Bread Cookies

I have to be honest, I thought Short Bread cookies were really hard to make, it was something you really had to have the knack for, but I'll let you in on a secret - they are so easy!!!

Recipe - 3 Ingredient Short Bread Cookies

  • 1C butter
  • 1/2C icing sugar
  • 2C flour

Step 1
This is wear the magic happens, use room temperature butter and you have to cream it to the max - I have the butter mixing in my kitchen aid for a good 5 minutes

Step 2
Blend in the icing sugar and flour until dough forms

Step 3
You can either roll out the dough and cut with cookie cutters or I just form a ball and flatten with my hand

Step 4
Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes, cool on a rack

Take it a step further
Top with sprinkles or cherries, butter icing or powdered sugar, lots of options to make your cookies unique - plain taste great too!

Family Thoughts

When I first made these I waited to get approval from my Mom that this was the *right* recipe for short bread and she loved them!  Said the texture was absolutely perfect.  A simple (who knew!) cookie to share with friends and family this Holiday Season.


  1. this is very similar to a recipe that I use. Instead of just flattening the balls of dough try using a fork. Gives a great impression and makes them look special. Tip Dip fork in flour so dough doesn't stick.

  2. this is GREAT! I have honestly been searching everywhere for a simple but delicious shortbread cookie recipe that I can whip up while getting other holiday activities done, and this one is perfect! exactly what I was looking for, thank you!

  3. love shortbread this is a very simple recipe

  4. This recipe was delicious for muh whole family but it made my vulva quite dry.

  5. I didn't know that such a simple shortbread recipe could exist!

  6. Currently it sounds like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform available
    right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're
    using on your blog?
