Samhain Shortbread

Here is my shortbread recipe I use at this time of year (ok, Yule, too) It was my grandmother's recipe and they are a good cookie to use with witchy cookie cutters. You will need:

  • 1 Cup butter (real butter, not margarine)
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Cups of flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
Cream together in a bowl, the first 4 ingredients until light & fluffy. Then blend in the last 2 ingredients and combine well. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll to a 1/4" thickness. Cut into shapes with a floured cookie cutter. Bake at 300F for about 8-10 minutes. Add icing, sprinkles, etc for decoration.
