12 Days of Cookies: Classic Shortbread
Sliced into neat rectangles, pricked gently with a fork, and simultaneously crisp, crumbly and tender, these shortbread cookies are perfectly traditional. And we don’t mean “traditional” in a stuffy, tired way — we mean “traditional” in a familiar, comforting and you’re-going-to-want-to-make-this-cookie-every-year way. They require only five ingredients, so you likely have everything you need to start baking right now.
