Brown Sugar Shortbread-The 5 Minute Christmas Cookie

Brown Sugar Shortbread -The Five-Minute Christmas Cookie! {Brittany's Pantry}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 -The Five-Minute Christmas Cookie! {Brittany's Pantry}Brown-Sugar-Shortbread-Christmas-Cookie Brown Sugar Shortbread
