Looking for a way to get the Easter Bunny to come to your garden early and leave the best treats? Try a plate of fresh shortbread cookies – guaranteed bunny bait!
Preheat oven to 325°. Cream until fluffy
1/2 C (1 stick) butter, softened
1/3 C powdered sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
Set aside. Sift together
1 C all-purpose flour
2 TBSP. cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
Work the flour mixture into the butter mixture just
until crumbly. Place dough between 2 sheets of plastic
wrap and roll to ¼ – ½ ” thickness. Cut with cookie
cutters, transfer to baking pan, add sugar sprinkles if
desired. Bake at 325° for 12-15 minutes; until
edges are barely light golden.
These are delicious plain with a cup of milk or herb tea; Peter Rabbit would like chamomile. Or you may wish to decorate them with buttercream frosting.
