Shortbread cookies make a tasty Valentine's Day treat for school parties or to simply eat at home! They're nice to share with your loved ones. But, if you're like me, you could hide these in the back of the pantry so you have them to yourself! What I like about shortbread cookies is the rich buttery taste. Surprisingly, there are not many more ingredients they require. But even though they are easy to make, shortbread cookies are not something you want to make if you are short on time. The dough is very soft, so you'll want to refrigerate it for at least a half hour-one hour before baking. Also, I highly recommend using butter over margarine or a butter spread. Spreads often have a high oil content, and will break down the dough. So, there's your "shortbread 101 baking tips!" Don't let these little cookies intimidate you. They'll be your friend if you don't underestimate them!
