There isn't anything better than getting together with family and sharing in the goodness that is food. I would like to share my great-grandmother's Scotch Shortbread recipe with you all. It is one of my favorite recipes around the holidays and is also one of the easiest things to make. 

{Scotch Shortbread}

1 cup butter at room temperature

1/2 cups sugar

2 1/2 cups flour

pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Slowly add flour and salt mixture until well blended.

Pinch a small amount from mixture and smash onto an ungreased pan. My mom's advice when making this is to handle the batter as little as possible when making the cookie. She also likes to use a fork and make a few holes in the top of the cookie. 

Bake in a 350 degree oven from 15-20 minutes or until the edges start to turn a golden color. That's it! Also, they are best stored in a tin cookie container and also make great gifts. We hope you all have a very blessed week and a lovely Thanksgiving!
