Mom's Shortbread Cookies
80 mins (prep 60, cooking 20)
5 ingredients
24 servings
My mum's recipe for shortbread cookies. My friends would always ask for these as Christmas or birthday gifts! Can be topped with homemade butter/icing sugar frosting. You can substitute half the butter with margarine if you want. In the picture, I added a teaspoon of lemon zest and made an icing with lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice and icing sugar.
