Fantastic Bake Along — Grandma’s Shortbread!

I am happy to say that Kate over at Life, Tea and Everything has given me the motivation to get this month’s Fantastic Bake Along up and going this week. I mean, I have to eat anyway so I might as well Bake Along with you!

Kate is this month’s Star Baker and she has selected Grandma’s shortbread cookies. Here is how she explains them:

“The original, unaltered recipe is from the old Canada Cornstarch box. My cousin swears by it, and it’s the only recipe I use for shortbread cookies.

I was able to find the recipe online from the manufacturer, since they no longer print it on the package.

The link to the online recipe is here. https://www.makegood.ca/recipe/grandmas-shortbread-cookies

I added a twist, and ground 1 tsp of culinary lavender with my mortar and pestle, and sifted it with the other dry ingredients.”

I’m so excited to try these cookies out! I especially like that there are only four ingredients in this recipe:). EASY!!

1/2 cup Fleischmann’s® Corn Starch

1/2 cup powdered sugar (also known as icing sugar)

1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup butter, softened

  • Here is the picture from the website.
  • I could see Stars, flowers, hearts, or just drops for these cookies. I will probably add nuts to mine, because all cookies around my house are required to have nuts or they won’t get eaten!
  • I hope you will join along in this FANTASTIC BAKE ALONG. Here is how–
  • I will be adding a linky party as well so all of the bakes will be easy to find for any of those who may come to the blog for the recipe and results at a later time.
  • Here is a list of bakers who regularly participate in our Bake Along:
  • I hope we will be able to add your name here this week! Ready, set, BAKE!!!

    1. I so need to make another batch of these! This time I’m going to try adding a bit of lemon zest with the lavender for lemon lavender cookies! I hope the weather is cool enough for some baking!
