Super simple shortbread cookies

My first recipe on this blog is going to be a simple one. The recipe is so simple, you'll be baking cookies in your sleep!

I love this recipe because it's not too sweet, doesn't ask for hard to get ingredients and it tastes oh so yummy! It's also great for decorating with royal icing to be given out as gifts or as favors.

Without further ado, here's the recipe.

Once chilled, thaw outside for 5 - 10 mins till dough is soft and roll it out flat. (as thick as you wish the cookies to be) Cut out shapes from the dough or you could just form balls and flatten onto a lined baking pan.

Set oven temperature to 180 celcius and bake for 20 mins or till golden brown. (Cooking time may vary depending thickness of cookies)

Once chilled, they may be eaten as is, or decorated with royal icing.

This recipe yields 18-20 5 inch cookies. Recipe may be halved.
