Easter Nibbles – Shortbread Easter Cookies

The boys and I are getting ready for our long Easter weekend and making our favourite shortbread cookies!

Seriously! Who thought it would be a good idea to let their kid bake in a black shirt? lol The boys need aprons, stat!

1/2 cup icing sugar

Roll out with rolling pin 1/4 inch thick

Cut with cookie cutters

Notice the colour choices here? It’s Easter and there is no pink or mauve in sight…*sigh*, that’s what happens when you only have boys.

  3. I’ll have to try this recipe. I have one from my hubby’s grandma, but they’re always so dry.
