Ingredients
  • 1 ¼ Cups of Butter (softened)
  • 1 TSP Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 TSP Baking Soda
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, blend together the butter and vanilla extract. Add in the powdered sugar, baking soda, and the flour.
  2. Mix with a fork or with your hands until the ingredients form a workable dough. (completely incorporated with no lumps and soft)
  3. Press the dough out on a clean surface to about ¼ to ½ inch thick (thicker cookies will stay together better but take a bit longer to cook).
  4. Cut out shapes in the dough with your favorite Easter or Spring themed cookie cutters. Place the cookie shapes on to a greased baking sheet.
  5. Bake at *350 degrees for about 12 minutes or until the cookies begin to brown slightly.
  6. Cool the cookies completely before frosting.

Use you favorite pre-made frosting or whip up an easy recipe of your own adding a tiny drop of food coloring to make light, pastel colors. This would be a super easy way to get the kids in the kitchen and let them help!

** Baking Tip – Pull shortbread cookies from the oven just as they start to turn golden. Do not over bake or they will be super crunchy, not soft.

ENJOY!

    Hello Jenn- those cookies remind me of being a child. We always had cookies decorated like that for Easter. I enjoyed seeing these and should try making a batch although it’s the colored frosting that really brought back the memories!

    These are so cute! Ive never made shortbread before. I think I like this idea more than sugar cookies.
    I’ve said this before, but I love the color of that serving platter.
    Thank you for sharing with See Ya in the Gumbo. Although the party has ended, features will be posted for the last time tonight. Your cookies are in the Top Five!
