How To Make 3-Ingredient Buttery Shortbread Cookies

As the name mentioned, this treat is made only from three ingredients, but who has ever imagine that the combination of three ingredients could turn into an incredible treat? Now, let’s just spend 25 minutes to enjoy the treat!


    • A cup of butter
    • Two cups of all-purpose flour
    • A half cup of powdered or light brown sugar


1First of all, prepare the oven by preheating it to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Don’t forget to prepare two large of baking sheets but better don’t use the parchment paper because it is going to curl up while you are baking the cookies. Then, you can start to make the cookie dough now.

2Prepare a large bowl, put a cup of butter and a half cup of powdered sugar into it. Then cream altogether. After that, add the flour to it and mix it all with the mixer until it turns into a soft dough. It may crumbly at first, but keep on mixing them until it softened. Then, form the dough to be a cohesive ball.

3Roll the dough to ¼ inch thick. But first, you need to dust the surface with all-purpose flour to prevent the dough stick. But if you desire to make the dough not too floury, then you can use the powdered sugar to dust the surface before rolling it. Then, cut the dough into rounds or another shape you like. And next put the cut dough into the prepared baking sheets and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the cookie turns lightly brown.

Now, the Buttery Shortbread Cookies with only three ingredients is ready to serve! It is perfect to enjoy it with your beloved family, or your best friends on this beautiful Christmas Eve.
