Martha Stewart's Shortbread Cookies

I used a modification of Martha Stewart's Shortbread Cookies Recipe and made delicious shortbread cookies. Its an easy recipe and doesn't require too many ingredients.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks (or 1 cup) of butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup of confectioner's sugar (or icing sugar)


Step 1: In a mixing bowl, mix together sifted flour and salt. Set aside.

Step 2: Mix the 2 sticks of butter in a beater on low:

until the butter is light and fluffy! Use a utensil to scrape down the butter in the sides. 

Step 3: While the mixer is beating the butter, add confectioner's sugar gradually. Then add the flour/salt mixture all at once. 

Step 4: The texture should look a lot like mashed potatoes. 

Step 5: Spoon the dough onto a baked sheet and press flat with the bottom of a spoon. Make sure the cookies are all the same thickness so they cook evenly. 


Step 6: Place in the oven for one hour until they are browned. 

and Voila! Shortbread Cookies.
