20 Mouthwatering Shortbread Desserts
My mom’s friend, Janie, used to send us over a plate of her shortbread cookies every Christmas. My mom always raved how amazing they were. I was a picky kid and at first thought the name sounded a bit weird. Bread cookies??? Then I took a bite and discovered what all the fuss was about. Shortbread cookies are THE best Christmas cookie, in my opinion. How can you not love the buttery, melt-in-your-mouth bites of sweetness?
