My Nana’s Shortbread

To me, Christmas is the smell of a fresh Fraser Fir and the aroma of Shortbread baking in the oven. My mum and I always bake my Nana’s recipe and it never fails to be a huge hit at cookie exchanges etc. I wanted to share this simple but fantastic version of a holiday staple with all of you!

NANA’S SHORTBREAD
4 heaping cups all purpose flour
1 pound salted butter, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
Cream butter and sugar together. Add flour, mixing in thoroughly with your hands.
Pat dough out to about 1/2” thick. Cut cookies with cutters. Prick each cookie with a fork and dust with coloured sugar.
Bake at 300 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool thoroughly on racks.
