Here is a recipe for shortbread cookies that my mother in law past down to me years ago and it is a tradition to make them every year in our family.
Just wouldn't be christmas without them!
1 lb. butter
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup cornstarch
3 cups flour
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Bake at 300 F for 15-20 min.
Combine all ingredients and use a cookie press to press cookies out on pan.
The dough is very soft, that is why a cookie press is needed.
Decorate each with chopped marachino cherry before baking.
