Shortbread Bites

I spotted this recipe the other day on Pinterest.  I absolutely love shortbread cookies.  I also am on my annual hunt for a new cookie to make and bake for a cookie swap.

Well I made these cute little cookies today.

1 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
3 tbs granulated sugar
1 stick of unsalted butter, cold and cubed
1 tablespoon(s) red and green nonpareils or sprinkles or 1/2 cup mini baking bits


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In food processor with knife blade attached, pulse flour and sugar until combined. Add butter and pulse until dough begins to come together. Place dough in medium bowl. With hand, gently knead in nonpareils or baking bits until evenly blended and dough forms a ball.





On lightly floured waxed paper, pat dough into 8" by 5" rectangle; freeze 15 minutes. Cut dough into 1/2-inch squares. Place squares, 1/2 inch apart, on ungreased large cookie sheet.

 


Bake cookies 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned on bottom. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining dough. Store cookies in tightly covered container at room temperature up to 1 week, or in freezer up to 3 months.




These came out pretty good, I do think it could use 1 more tbs of sugar.
