Oh my gosh, it's the best recipe ever.

Quote:Ingredients

½ cup of salted butter
½ cup of hard margarine
½ cup of icing sugar
1½ cups of flour

Try Premium Almond Paste in This Recipe.

Instructions

Whip the margarine, butter and icing sugar together well. You can use all butter for sure,then it is a shortbread for the purist.
Once it looks all deliciously creamy, resist from eating it by the spoonful, and get your flour ready.
Start the mixer and slowly add in the flour, until it has all been added in.
Then you can proceed to let your mixer do all the work for you and whip it for 6 minutes. You are wanting lighter than air shortbread here.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the dough out onto an ungreased baking sheet. Top with sprinkles or a piece of Christmas cherry.
Bake them in a 275 degree oven for about 30-35 minutes you want to dry out shortbread in essence, not bake it, thus the low temperature.
(If you have a warm kitchen or live in a warm climate, cool the cookies in the fridge then bake. They won't flatten out)

I love this recipe. I put the cookies in the freezer for 10 minutes or so to cool before going in the oven.

Why margarine? I don't like margarine! Why not butter?

Absolutely use all butter if you prefer. I used half margarine and had good results, but certainly not necessary.

If you both decide to be the judges, make sure you both clean your palates out with water before the next bite.

There may be a bit of disagreement. I'll have to stock some budweiser in the fridge to avert a knock down drag out. While my cookies are clearly better, she's a tough lady rancher who enforces her culinary superiority with her fists. Her cooking really isn't that good. coffeetime.gif

Then again, you both have to allow for different palates, but beer always helps to clarify matters.

Budweiser is basically water so it should work.
