Shortbread is my all-time favorite cookie. I love the flaky, buttery texture the cookie has, while crisp and sweet just to the taste. Dont get me wrong, they taste excellent slightly crunchier at room temperature too.

All purpose flour 1 3/4 Cup (28 tbs)
Confectioners' sugar 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
