Alison Roman's shortbread cookies are a classic recipe that is sure to be a hit with anyone who tries them. The ingredients you will need for this recipe are:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
To make the cookies, start by preheating your oven to 350°F and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, confectioners' sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add the flour and mix until the dough comes together.

Form the dough into a ball and transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough out until it is about 1/4-inch thick, then use a cookie cutter or the rim of a glass to cut out cookies in your desired shape. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until they are lightly golden around the edges.
Allow the cookies to cool completely before serving. These shortbread cookies are best enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee. Enjoy!
