Who doesn’t love cookies on a Thursday? Or any day for that matter. Shortbread Cookies or Scotch Cakes, depending on where you grew up the label may vary.
1 lb of butter ( make sure this is softened, room temperature works best, but do not melt in the microwave)
1 1/2 cups icing sugar ( confectionery sugar)
5 cups flour
Mix and work together
( I usually beat butter first, slowly add in icing sugar, then add flour gradually)
Roll out and cut into various shapes.
4 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup shortening
5 Tbsp of milk
mix all together, add food colouring as desired
