Using the basic shortbread recipe (which is at the end of this post), bake the cookies, cool. Then make:
SHORTBREAD COOKIE RECIPE:
2 sticks butter, softened
½ cup powdered sugar
2 cup flour
¼ tsp salt
1½ tsp vanilla
Cream butter and sugar. Add flour, salt and vanilla. It becomes very crumbly. Use your hands to finish mixing it until it becomes a ball. Wrap in saran wrap, roll into a log shape and refrigerate for about 30 minutes (or longer). Slice very thin, about ¼ inch (or less). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-13 minutes until just turning brown on edges. Remove and cool. Decorate or eat just the way they are! Enjoy!
