Last week I had a few friends over for a potluck and games night, and one guy brought this CRACK SHORTBREAD. It is the easiest recipe ever and it’s SOOOOO GOOD. I’ve never made shortbread before, and when he told me his recipe I memorized it and made it this night!
I’ve mentioned before how I’m not the best measurer, and I just guessed looking at a block of butter if it was a cup (two sticks). This is pretty much the easiest recipe ever and only takes four ingredients.
2 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1 c butter (2 sticks)
1/2 tsp salt
Pat or roll out to about half an inch thick. I used a silpat; love these!
Bake at 300 for half an hour or so.
A pizza cutter is THE way to cut shortbread. So easy!
For extra decadence, melt some chocolate chips (I wish I’d used a deeper bowl to get more chocolate on the ends) and dip your cookies in the melted chocolate and then some chopped walnuts. Yum!
Now please excuse me while my roommates and I stuff our faces. Beware, this stuff is ADDICTING.
