It’s been ages since I have baked my Buttery Iced Shortbread Melts! My daughter now claims this is her favorite cookie recipe!
These cookies earned their name because they are so sweet and tender that they really will melt in your mouth!Enjoy!
Buttery Iced Shortbread Melts
2 sticks of butter, softened
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, add butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Cream ingredients together; add flour. Continue to mix ingredients until everything is blended. Form dough into a ball.
Place dough on a piece of parchment paper that is coated with a light coating of flour. Roll dough out until it is about 1/4” thick. Use more flour if needed. Cut out cookies using a cookie cutter. Place cookies on prepared cookie sheet about 1 1/2” apart. Bake for about 8 minutes. Do not over bake. They will firm up after removing them from the oven. Allow cookies to cool completely on cookie sheet before moving them.
I made a thin batch of butter-cream icing and dipped the top of each cookie in the icing. I used some homemade colored sugar sprinkles to fancy them up.
These cookies would be perfect to serve at a ladies luncheon, bridal shower, or a tea party.
What is the last kind of cookie you made?
