Mama’s little baby loves shortenin’ bread! That’s right … shortbread had been a staple for many years and it is beloved by many. It’s sold in places like Panera and Starbucks and is a best seller – so it’s not lost popularity at all. You can easily get this treat anytime when you bake it at home, and it’s so easy! Not only will mama’s little babies love it but all of her friends and family. My favorite thing to do is dip it in my coffee because it soaks it up and gains all the flavor of both in each bite. It’s absolutely delicious!
If you’ve never had shortbread before, it’s very similar to a sugar cookie but with more of a bread consistency. I love it because it is lightly sweet and completely satisfying. You should definitely give it a try using the classic recipe below. I know you will be in love!
