Grandma’s Shortbread Fantastic Bake Along Results

It feels like Christmas in July around my house:). I just loved making these these tender cookies. Thank you Kate @ Life, Tea, and Everything for being this month’s star baker and for sharing the recipe with us!

When Kate first shared the recipe for Shortbread cookies I knew exactly what I was going to do.

My beautiful daughter- in-law gave me a Pampered Chef Rolling Cookie Cutter for Christmas last year. Now was the perfect time to give it a try.

I’m happy to report, the cookies turned out so pretty:)

I wish I could say the cutter was easy and life changing for me, but it kind of was a bust. The dough would stick to the roller . When I would try to pull it out, the dough would squish. I think I need a little more practice to be sure:)

In the meantime, I took the scraps and made them into the crescents that the recipe recommended. Yum!

Seriously, this shortbread is so delicate and soft. Kate recommended adding flavors like lavender. I do think some flavoring would be a good idea as the cookie really is more about the tender texture than the flavor.

I added the nuts, because we are all nutty around my house. On the crescents, the chocolate also was a nice addition.

Have you ever had a TWIX candy bar? If you add a bit of caramel to this shortbread, it would be an EXACT copy cat recipe! De-licious!

Thank you once again Kate❤️ I will be making up a batch or two of these come Christmas. I bet peppermint candy would be a SWEET addition.

  1. Those look yummy Tracy! I am sitting here waiting for my butter to soften, and debating about the flavoring. I was thinking cardamom, but I don’t have any, so maybe cinnamon or almond extract, with slivered almonds on top. I have some time yet to check out other options, I’ll see what’s in the cupboard.

  2. Yum! Your cookies look so tasty, Tracy! I’m so glad I was able to share this recipe. I think part of the reason it’s my favourite is because it’s so versatile, and easy to make.
