Brown Sugar Shortbread-The 5 Minute Christmas Cookie
Nope! I am not exaggerating! This cookie will literally take you 5 minutes to make. A half an hour total from start to finish if you count baking time, a few minutes to cool and then cutting it into squares. Its light, crunchy, and the perfect addition to a holiday cookie tray or treat box for the neighbors. I was feeling a bit guilty that I haven’t flooded you with Christmas recipes so I thought I would make up for it with the easiest recipe I know. And everybody loves shortbread, right? Most shortbread recipes only have a few ingredients and this one is no exception. Three to be exact. So no excuses! You barely even need a recipe! Feel free to be really sinful and dip one end of the cookie in melted chocolate. Brown Sugar Shortbread
1 c flour
1 stick of softened butter

Mix all ingredients until fully incorporated. Press into the bottom of an 8X8 or 9X9 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until evenly golden brown across the top. Cool slightly and then cut into 16 squares. Cool completely. Store at room temperature, tightly sealed.
