I honestly love a good, homemade shortbread cookie. It may be one of my favs next to a Chocolate Chip. This recipe is just so delicious, buttery and soft! It doesn’t make a lot, so if I were you, I’d make at least 2 batches because it’s THAT easy to make! ENJOY!
Brown Sugar ShortbreadPrint Recipe
- 1 and 1/4 c flour
- 3 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 c packed light brown sugar
- 7 tbsp butter, softened
- 1 and 1/2 tsp ice water

Combine flour, cornstarch, and salt in a small bowl and stir with a whisk.
Place brown sugar and butter in a medium bowl; mix until combined; add flour mixture, and mix until combined.
Sprinkle dough with ice water and knead lightly 4 times or just until smooth.
Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and place dough on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Pierce entire surface liberally with a fork and bake for 25 minutes or just until set and edges are golden.
Cut shortbread into 24 pieces and let cool completely.
