3-Ingredient Classic Scottish Shortbread Cookies
These 3-ingredient treats are one of my favorite holiday traditions! The Classic Scottish Shortbread Cookies come from an old family recipe that has been passed down for generations, and they have been a Christmas staple for as long as I can remember. The cookies are a great way to introduce your little ones to baking, they're perfect with a warm mug of cocoa, and they make great gifts for the neighbors! If you're like me and you love to do some holiday baking, but you're busy, you've got kids at your feet who want to be involved, and you're not very patient when it comes to intricate, multi-step recipes, then these shortbread cookies are just the answer!
Notes*If you’re not using salted butter, you can add about ¼ teaspoon salt to the dough when mixing.
**I used a 2 ¼-inch round cutter to yield 20 cookies.
