Traditional (unhealthy) Shortbread

I’m Italian, biscotti is our thing, recipe I will share once I get a grip on some gift wrapping.

For 10 years, this one never fails me.

1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 cup flour
3/4 cup softened butter

Sift together corn starch, icing sugar, flour. Thoroughly blend in butter. Use whatever tool works for you; spoon or my fav, bare hands. Work until a soft smooth dough forms.

If necessary, refrigerate for one hour. I’ve made dough one day, covered air tight in fridge, taken out for a couple hours next day then made and baked.

Roll into 1″ balls. Place about 1 1/2″ apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Flatten with a floured fork. I roll each ball out into a crescent.

Bake @ 300 for 15-20 min or until edges are slightly brown. Cool cookie on cooling racks

Nothing healthy here.
It’s about moderation not deprivation
