Shortbread Cookies

We (the kids and I) made Halloween Shortbread Cookies on Sunday.  I really wanted cookies so I pulled out my (very old) Betty Crocker cookbook (1960 – it was my grandma’s cookbook that she gave to me when I went to college).  This makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Pumpkin, Bat, Cat, and Frankenstein Cookie Cutters and my helper

3/4 cup butter (softened)
1/4 cup sugar
2 cup all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all ingredients together and roll out on a floured cloth on a board.  Roll out to about 1/2″ thickness and and use cookie cutters (we used Halloween ones).  Bake for 20 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Remove from pan immediately and place on cooling racks.

Who says I can’t fit that whole bat cookie in my mouth at once?

Takes about an hour from start to finish (clean-up) and they are FANTASTIC!  It is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
