I know I've mentioned it before, but when I worked at that coffee shop we made lots of things from scratch. Like cinnamon rolls, cakes, brownies, pound cakes, breads...and shortbread! My boss was a little particular when it came to the way that all of us made his shortcake especially. I guess I can see why...you know, he wanted it perfect, and if it's not done right it could get messed up. But now I'm realizing that shortcake is something that I'm pretty sure no one could mess up....ok, maybe I shouldn't say that. But it's easy peasy and great! Here's my recipe, and yes it only has 4 ingredients! :)
1 Stick Butter (Unsalted)
1 c. Powdered Sugar
1 c. All Purpose flour
1. Start with the stick of butter. Just pull it out of the fridge and plop it in a bowl. Then with a pastry blender (or fork) make it into smaller pieces like so.
|Pour, compact and texture.|
Enjoy! It'll be crisp, crumbly and just perfect shortbread consistency! Yum. :)
