Shortbread cookies



Blog Hop Wednesdays initiated by Radhika of Tickling Palates enters another week and this week my Blog Hop partner is Monika of Sin-A-Mon blog..The Alphabet shortbread cookies from her blog very attractive and I chose to try them out..They were really good and vanished away quickly..Thanks Monika for this delicious one..Since I tried just half the quantity, the measurements given below are also half of the original. Also I skipped lemon zest since I didnt have any.. 

Ingredients

 3 cups all purpose flour/maida
1.5 cups soft butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1.5 tsp vanilla essence
Sugar candies for toppings

Cream the butter well. Add sugar powdered and mix again till creamy. Add in the essence, salt and flour and make a soft dough. Cover in a plastic sheet and refrigerate for atleast an hour.

Take a small portion, roll into a thick round, sprinkle candies and cut desired shapes.

Line on a baking tray and chill for 15 minutes. Preheat oven at 175 degrees and bake for 8 minutes.

Cool well and serve.
