Tis’ the Season for Shortbread

‘Tis the season to be knee-deep in flour & frosting. And I couldn’t be happier about it. Baking cookies is one of my most beloved Christmas traditions. I love the way the house smells, I love the little nibbles by passerbyers, I love being a complete mess all day and not worrying about a thing.

‘Tis the season to embrace the mess. The good  – the bad – the ugly – the sad. Embrace it all. I’ll admit, 87% of these cookies turned out looking like a character from Goonies (I won’t name any names). At one point, the frosting even came spewing out the end of the piping bag and plopped a giant blob on top a few cookies. At first I panicked, not going to lie. I was frustrated and my patience was wearing thinner than the frosting.

How was I to deliver these blobby (for lack of a better word) cookies to neighbors and family and loved ones? Then, I took a deep breath, ate a few cookies, and realized that’s just not what it’s about. It’s about the conversation I get to have with a loved one and the hug I am able to share when I deliver a tray of homemade cookies. These deliveries are perfectly imperfect, and that is what it is all about.

So if you find yourself feeling like nothing can go right. Try not to be too hard on yourself. Life is hard. And that is okay. You’re doing the best you can.

In honor of Beyonce’s hubby, Jay-Z, I say: If you feelin’ like a dud hun, gon’ brush your shoulders off. … You gotta get, that, (flour) off your shoulder

cookie recipe

These cookies are my favorite because not only are they easy peasy, but they are DELICIOUS! Once you’ve made them (which takes like literally 20 mins from start to finish) you can do whatever your little heart desires with them. Frost, sprinkle, decorate, eat – you name it.

what you’ll need
1. 2 sticks of (cold!) butter
2. 1/2 cup of brown sugar
3. 2 cups of flour
4. 1 teaspoon vanilla

what you’ll do
1. preheat oven to 325
2. cube up the butter and put it in a mixer with the brown sugar and vanilla
3. once its all smooth, add the flour, 1 cup at a time
4. after it’s all mixed put it in a ball wrap it up, put in the fridge for about 20 mins
5. take it out, roll it out and cut it out!
6. put your shapes on parchement paper and bake for 15(ish) minutes or until the edges or golden.
7. DECORATE!!! or just eat. That works too 😉
