Terri’s Families Shortbread Cookies Recipe

My family recipe – Shortbread Cookies

1 lb Butter

2 Tbsp Lard

1 cup powdered confectioners sugar

4 cups flour

1 tsp salt

2 tsp baking soda

In an electric mixer cream very soft butter and the lard. Slowly add the powdered confectioners sugar and mix for 5 minutes on high until light and fluffy.  That’s the trick for these melt-in-your-mouth cookies. Then add flour, salt, and baking soda. I recommend 1 cup at a time…less messy that way. Mix well and form in balls (use a melon baller so much easier). Flatten with a fork and put red and green cherries on top.

Bake at 300 for 20-25 minutes

Happy baking!
