Shortbread Cookies recipe - eggless Shortbread Cookies recipe - Simple Eggless cookies recipe

We had long weekend and kids were at home. They wanted some cookies or cake. I wanted to try shortbread cookies for quite come time. So I have decided to try it out. It is simple to make. I have followed the recipe from Joyofbaking. It is simple enough recipe to include kids in your baking activities.

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Salt - 1/8 teaspoon
Butter - 1 stick (1/2 cup)
Icing Sugar - 1/2 cups
Vanilla extract - 1 teaspoon

Shift the flour and salt together. Keep it aside.
In broader bowl take butter and icing sugar and beat it till it is creamy and smooth. Scrap the sides as required. I have used hand mixer. Now add Vanilla extract and beat again. 
Now add Flour and bring together with your hands into stiff dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and keep it in refrigerator for an hour. Line the baking tray with parchment paper. Take out the dough and roll it into 1/4 inc thick circle. Using the desired shape of cookie cutter prepare the cookies. 

 Arrange the cookies in the baking tray. Pre-heat the oven at 180 degree C. Bake the cookies for 10-12 mins or till the cookies are slightly browned. Cool it completely 

Store it in air tight container and enjoy it

  1. nice soft cookies, love to make this.

  2. cute and simple cookies,looks crisp :)

  3. Can we use ordinary sugar instead of icing sugar. I don't have the later. By vanilla extract you mean vanilla essence right? I am new to baking...hence these questions.

    1. you can use normal sugar but powder it before using. Vanilla extract is thicker than essence. Not sure your is pure version but yes you can use essence ...1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract = 1½ teaspoons of Vanilla Essence

  4. yummy yummy cookies!! I can eat them as a main course!!

  5. Cookies have come out neat and well baked Veena. It sounds quite easy that one can involve the kids too.
