Shortbread Cookies

Oh my where have I been? Tis the Season to neglect my blog!

I have been Christmas shopping, entertaining, gifting, working, (I'm an esthetician, making fingers and toes look pretty) and just simply eating my baked Christmas cookies. As we enter the holiday season, I am pulling out all of my go-to recipes. Today, I made shortbread. Although, not my usual go to shortbread for my stoneware mold. I thought I would try something different and came across Shane's recipe on his Blog. I had my doubts as the recipe uses only 78 grams of butter which is only about 1/3 of a cup. I just had to give this recipe a try... I love a challenge! I also had to convert grams to cups! Shane describes this recipe as "a little bit of a chew too it, but still melts in your mouth, oozing with butter flavor, lightly sweet with just a hint of a saltiness" I agree on all counts! lol Next time i may use a bit more butter. And it was the perfect accompaniment with Earl Grey tea ♥

I almost forgot to take photos!

If you're curious on my gram to cups conversion here ya go!
78 grams of butter - 1/3 cup (next time I may use a tbsp or two more)
45 grams of sugar - 1/4 cup sugar
140 grams of flour - 1 cup flour (or maybe I'll use less flour and no extra butter :) )

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful! I will confess, that the butter amount changes depending on which of my 4 molds I use. My square mold requires more butter than my round or octagonal molds for some strange reason, even though it holds the same amount of "dough".

  2. Yes...where HAVE you been?! :o)
    So good to see a new post...and such a yummy one too! Guess what I'm craving now? Thank you!
    Have a great weekend! :o)
