Shortbread Cookies

Jolene P.

1 cup softened butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
**optional ingredients

Cream butter and sugar together, then add vanilla, salt and baking powder. Add flour and stir well. Spoon dough onto plastic wrap and roll into a log. Place in freezer overnight. Slice into cookies, place on greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool and eat.

** you can add 1 cup of the following: toffee chips, milk chocolate chips, chopped pecans, chopped cashews, toasted coconut, chopped macadamia nuts, or come up with your own. We've done plain, chocolate/macadamia nuts, macadamia nuts, coconut, and toffee. My fave is the chocolate/macadamia nut, but Kevin LOVES the shortbread plain or with a nut in it.

Have fun with them!
