Shortbread recipe

I greatly enjoy baking these simple tasty cookies!!!

1 cup of butter
1/3 cup of sugar

*cream together the butter and sugar gradually until the dough is creamy*

2 cups of flour
1/4 cup of cornstarch

*knead the dough until it cracks around the edges and chill it for 30-60 minutes*

*roll out the dough on a floured surface until the dough is roughly 1/4 inch thick and cut out into desired shapes*

*bake 15-20 minutes at 325`F and make sure the shortbread doesn’t start to brown around the edges*

*option-place the dough in greased pie plates and let them cook for an extra 5-10 minutes*
