Super Simple Shortbread Cookies

Hey, guys! Shortbread cookies are one of the most simple cookie recipes you’ll ever find. While they may be simple, they’re delicious! They have a one of a kind buttery taste you won’t find anywhere else. Unless you make a butter cookie, because those taste pretty buttery too :P. My recipe creates a soft shortbread cookie that crumbles as you chew. You can add your own signature touch on these by adding a chocolate drizzle or really anything you want!

Makes: 24 cookies Bake Time: 14 minutes

What You’ll Need

2  cups of all-purpose flour

1 cup of softened butter 

1/2 of a cup of white granulated sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla

Optional: Milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, nuts, etc…


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line pan with parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter and sugar in bowl. Cream until light and fluffy.

    I told you this recipe was simple! The dough will be crumbly, but will combine well when you scoop it onto the baking sheet. 

  5. Using your amazing 1-inch scoop, press the dough into the scoop.
  6. Bake at 350° F for 14 minutes, or until edges and top brown.
