Simple Shortbread Cookies

cookies
Imagine these on your TG table :)
short bread collage
Another of my Joy of Baking recipes. Let me tell you right off the bat, that there ain't nothing simple about these babies. This whole procedure is a temperature thing and the dough has to be just so, sos to not crumble or stick - Very interesting experience - As Indians we so casually make chappatis, pooris and naans, and yet a cookie dough can lead you a dance! I followed every one of steps and advise Stephanie gives and she did say that the dough can crack - I saw hers did, but CERTAINLY not as much as mine did. But I am a quick learner and keep refrigerating the dough after each batch until they went in the oven. They turned out to be beauties, but surely they were a labor of love. While I am happy to say I made 4 dozens at least, I ate only 1 and send the rest to the school for the Election Day Bake Sale :) For the process explanation, click here and listen to Stepahnie;s reassuring voice... And enjoy my pictures :)
