This Shortbread Cookie brings back good memories of my 1st Disneyland Trip. Disneyland is not only for kids, it also caters to adults even to the ones who are not crazy with rides (like me). There are so many things to do, see and eat!  The food itself is part of the experience. They made even the simplest food taste amazing.

The tomato soup is one of my favorite, the Mickey ice cream sandwich and the Mickey shortbread cookie! I had that cookie almost everyday and I even bought few pieces to take home. I wish I could have those here, but since I cannot, I would settle to something similar.

This is a four ingredients cookie that taste so good! The ingredients are so basic that you probably have most of these in your pantry. They are very versatile cookie to have on hand for snacking or gift giving. You cut this cookie into different shapes and sizes, use a cookie press and make a pretty flower shortbread or have it as a base for tarts. You can also coat or dipped it in melted chocolate, or sandwich it with jam or frosting as filling.

The steps are very simple, the ingredients are very basic, you only have few key things to remember if you want to have a nice buttery crisp smooth shortbread cookie. Since this cookie does not have a lot of ingredients, a lot of the taste will be coming from the butter and vanilla extract for flavoring. So, use a good quality butter and only pure Vanilla Extract (if using). Spending few more for quality ingredients can go along way.  Let’s get started!

This dough can be made using a stand mixer, hand mixer or food processor. The instructions below uses a stand mixer, while the video uses food processor. As you can see, using food processor is the easiest way to make this cookie dough. But you do not have to have one, a stand mixer or hand mixer is the common way most people do it.

The only difference is the state of the butter. When using stand or hand mixer, use softened butter. This will allow the mixture to combine easily. While when using food processor, since it can easily handle hard butter, cold butter is the best one to use. Food processor method is simply putting all ingredients in the processor. Here is how you do it.

Can I Use Granulated Sugar Instead of Icing Sugar
Technically, you can but the texture will be the same. Icing sugar have a fine powdered texture that makes the cookie smooth and creamy. It also blends well, and dissolve easily thus producing a better cookie texture.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted Butter – softened at room temperature (If using a food processor, use COLD butter)
  • 1/4 cup Confectioner’s /Icing sugar (Sifted – Sift first before measuring)
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)
  • 1/3 cup Dipping /Melting Chocolate (optional)
