Something strange has happened to me...I started playing Christmas music long before my usual grinchy December 1st date....in fact, I started playing it in the 2nd week of November....I'm not sure what's happening? Maybe it's because I'm finally medicated and not so derned grumpy....? I'm not sure, but whatever the reason, I'm enjoying it, I'm feeling festive, and festive-ness says shortbread to me! Make it a crazy simple, freezable shortbread, and I'm over-the-moon!
I make a mean whipped shortbread, and seriously, it's so buttery and good, but these adorable Scottish shortbread have been calling to me.
This is a recipe I pinned on Pinterest from Gourmet Photography, and these seriously buttery and scrumptious cookies only have 3 ingredients! Woot woot! Anyone can pull these off, and did I mention they freeze? Yes I did! Well, what are you sitting and reading this for? Get out the 3 ingredients, a freezer friendly bag or plastic container, and get baking for the holidays! :)
This batch makes about about 4 dozen cookies and it doubles (and triples) well. Woot woot!
I hope you all try these out! They are worth it for sure!
So, this weekend has my husband work party tonight, then Saturday is our Tweed Santa Clause Parade, as well as the Tweed Festival of Trees. Later in the day we hope to make a trip and visit with some friends who we had lost touch with, then Sunday is my husband's work party for the kids! So, it's a busy weekend up ahead, but I'm looking forward to it! It's a weekend full of Christmas activities!
I hope you have some festive plans for the weekend, and if you don't, well, bake some cookies! :)

I find this recipe is PERFECT for shortbread based baked goods that you need to be strong - like cheesecake, squares, etc. Also, I love that you wrote "finally medicated" LOL xoxo

Indeed, this shortbread is perfect for a base! I would make it with white sugar if I was using it as a base though; I like to use brown sugar if I'm making them to stand alone. And Christmas on meds is a lot more merry than without!!! :)

Apparently I'm supposed to write on this blog if I make this shortbread. So now I am. haha

To make it even easier, I just had them in the mixer for 5 minutes. I'm not about to stand there and knead for 5 minutes when something else will do it for me.
