Christmas is almost here! If you’re searching for a last-minute cookie recipe, you’ve come to the right place. Classic melt in your mouth shortbread comes together quickly and is guaranteed to be a hit with Santa (or on the family baking tray).
I’ve tried a lot of shortbread recipes over the years, and this one is my favourite. Once you try a cornstarch-based recipe, you won’t go back. Word to the wise–do not substitute margarine for butter. The recipe will not work.Santa wants these classic shortbread cookies when he stops by your house.Click To Tweet
Classic Melt in Your Mouth Shortbread
1 cup corn starch,
1 cup icing sugar,
