Of course I had to make my favourite shortbread cookies of all times. I found this in a magazine at least a decade ago and it was love at first bite. "Elfin Shortbread Bites" are just that, they measure only 1/2 inch on a side.
Elfin Shortbread Bites
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
3 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
2 tbsp round, coloured sprinkles
Stir together flour and sugar. Cut in butter till crumbly. Stir in sprinkles. Form into a ball and knead till smooth. The heat from your hands will help meld the ingredients together.
Roll on cookie sheet into 8 x 5 inch rectangle. Remember to wash your ruler before putting it near your cookie dough.
Do not skip adding the sprinkles, they really do make these into magical cookies.
While these were in the oven, I mixed up the "Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball" that my sister requested. It is sitting in the fridge chilling so that I'll be able to shape it into a ball. I'll have the recipe and photo for you tomorrow.
