Study break: Shortbread Cookies

In between studying for exams, I got bored and decided to do some baking instead. I was interested in shortbread cookies recently and I found a super easy recipe on allrecipes.com! This is the EASIEST recipe ever. There are only 3 steps and 4 ingredients! It really doesn’t get easier than that. Ok I purposely picked the easiest recipe, it’s harder to go wrong with that right?

PS. I halved the recipe and still had nearly two dozen cookies so beware if you want to try this yourself! The proportions on the recipe aren’t correct.

What I Learned:

1. Make sure your butter is softened first so it creams better and then your dough will be less crumbly.

2. Try to make them all the same size! Ok that was pretty obvious but I still had trouble doing it when I was rolling out the dough multiple times the thickness varied…

3. Take them out of the oven a bit earlier! Mine started browning a bit on the bottom :( Nonetheless, still tasty and melted in your mouth!
