Holiday Shortbread Bites



These are so good! They are also so easy to make! You may need a little assistance at some point, but these were so simple to make.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to give out in cookie tins. It led me to the website cooking classy.com. Her recipe is very simple and worked out really well, although I thought it was a disaster at one point.

This makes about 70 bite pieces, maybe more.

 

Ingredients: - 1 cup of butter, cubed and cold, but not hard

- 2/3 cup of sugar

- 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract

- 2 1/4 cups of flour

- 2 1/2 tablespoons of sprinkles. I like the little balls in green,red, and white

Equipment: - 13x9 baking dish or sheet. ( I personally recommend using a cookie sheet with raised edges. I had a baking dish though and it worked out) - Parchment paper

- Bowl

- Hand Mixer

- Cookie sheet

Instructions: 1) In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter until smooth. Add almond extract. Add flour, at this point, it will look like sand. Add sprinkles.

2) Take a baking dish, butter the bottom and sides. Take two pieces of parchment paper and lay one horizontally and vertically in the dish and leave enough on the sides to use to lift the cookie mixture out.

3) Take the dough that looks like sand and place it into the dish that is now lined with parchment paper. Press the dough down to fill the pan and press it down firmly. Chill for an hour.

4) Preheat the oven to 350F. Using the parchment paper overhang sides, pull out the cookie mixture and lay on counter. You may need someone to help you pull it out because the mixture is so fragile. If you've pulled everything out of the dish and nothings cracked, you're amazing.

5) Cut the dough into bite size pieces and place them on the cookie sheet. Bake until the edges are just lightly golden. Let cool and enjoy!

 

Thanks for reading,
