I make these every Christmas they are really a big hit with everyone including the kids.

1lb or 2 cups soft butter
1 3/4 cups sifted icing sugar
4 1/2 cups sifted flour

Cream butter and mix in icing suger then add flour gradually. I don't add all the flour only if dough is a little soft. Use unused flour for rolling out. Roll into small balls chill in fridge 10-20 minutes covered in wax paper. Warm dough by kneeding 1 minute. Roll out 1/4 inch thick and cut with your favourite cookie cutters. Decorate with Christmas sprinkles if you like. You can also add food colouring if desired to change the colour of the dough. I don't do this often as kneeding the dough to much can make it less "fluffy" so to speak once they are baked.

Bake at 300 15-20 minutes.


Note - last year I added slivered almonds this was a real hit! Very Happy Our family has been using this for years enjoy!! Very Happy Even my picky Italian Grandma likes them!

Oh my gosh. I hadn't thought about shortbreads in so long.
Back in my younger days, when my family was poor, we didn't have desserts often. As a young girl, maybe eight or nine, I found a recipe in one of my mom's books for this. I think we just used regular sugar.

Often flour, sugar and butter ( margarine) was all the cooking items we had in the house. I would make these and my sisters and I would squish the dough in our hands so it ooze out between our fingers and then bake them. It made them look somewhat like a croissant.

I have enjoyed cooking ever since ( also my mom was and still is a lousy cook )

Do it Nancy they will love it! Some of my best Childhood memories are of me and my mom doing the Christmas Baking together! We at times butted heads (as normal kids and parents do) but this was something we totally enjoyed doing together! I remember starting to ask in October when we are going to do our baking !!

Yes, dear... I have coined a new AABB word. Doing a Frannie, or getting Frannie means getting all lovey-dovey-emotional-weepy. xoxoxo
