Pick up your oven mitts and get into that Julia Child-esque mindset… It’s time to bake! Now I know that might be a scary feat for those who are not culinary-inclined, but I promise you that this simple, festive recipe is completely fail proof. Just try to prove me wrong, I dare you ;)
Here’s what you’ll need:
3 cups of flour
½ cup of sugar
2 sticks of butter
First, preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
Next, you need to soften up the butter a bit. Don’t melt it all the way though.
Thirdly, add the sugar to your soft butter and mix well, making sure that there are no lumps (mixing by hand works best).
Lastly, gradually mix in flour until the dough is smooth.
Put mixture into an ungreased (preferably glass) 9X13 pan and press down, making sure to distribute the dough evenly. Using a fork, poke holes into the dough all throughout the pan. This allows the shortbread to bake evenly. Also, I personally like to sprinkle some sugar on top of the shortbread for added sweetness ☺
Ta-da! You’re done! Told you it would be easy. With such simple ingredients and easy instructions, this is basically the perfect recipe for fall. So enjoy!
