SHARE’s Shortbread Cookies (courtesy of Krissie Sondles, food bank supervisor)
Much like the baker herself, these cookies are legendary at SHARE Society!
Here at SHARE we frequently use food to say “thank you” and to show our staff and volunteers how much we care about, and appreciate them.
At SHARE we know how important food is to our well-being: It’s something we see every single day at the food bank.
We hope these delicious cookies make you feel loved and if you are inclined to spread that love around, please share a cookie with a neighbour.
3 cups flour
½ cup corn starch
1 cup icing sugar
1 lb butter
Cream butter then whip (the longer you whip, the lighter the cookies will be).
Add icing sugar gradually then whip until the consistency of whipping cream.
Add flour and corn starch, beat all together until light and fluffy.
You can either add more flour and roll out the dough and use cookie cutters, or scoop out by teaspoon or tablespoon depending how big you want your cookies and place on cookie sheet.
Bake at 300° degrees until bottoms are golden brown, for about 15 minutes.
