Keyword: Shortbread cookies


  • 1 cup salted butter- room temperature Kerrygold works best
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 scoops Provita Vanilla Supplement


  • Mix all ingredients together until well blended.
  • Once the shortbread cookie ingredients are well blended, then you will want to choose your baking method for your shortbread cookies.
  • Cutouts:
    After step 1 above, roll dough out to 1/8-1/4 inch thickness and make cut outs.  Then put cut out pieces onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight, covered.  Remove from refrigerator and bake at 325 degrees for approximately 8-12 minutes until edges are lightly golden.

  • Drop cookies:
    After step 1, use a medium cookie scoop to scoop out dough and carefully make sure each cookie scoop is uniform in size. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and using your hands, roll each ball into a smooth ball and patting it slightly to form a perfectly formed  cookie. Put each "cookie circle" on parchment lined cookie sheet and place in refrigerator for at least one hour. If leaving overnight you will need to cover. Remove from refrigerator and bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes.
