Mini Christmas Shortbread Cookies
I love the buttery sweet flavor of shortbread cookies and since everything is cuter tiny, I used my favorite shortbread recipe to make some fun elf sized mini Christmas shortbread cookies.
This is the perfect recipe to make with kids! The ingredients list is simple, kneading and stirring are great kids tasks, and there are no eggs in the recipe (which makes it perfect for cookie dough tasting)!
½ teaspoon almond extract (can be substituted for 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
Add in the extract (almond or vanilla)
After you have chilled the dough, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.Remove rolled shortbread dough from fridge, slice rolls into ¼ inch thick pieces and lay them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
