Remember the 1-2-3 shortbread ratio and you're all set to make most classic all-butter shortbread cookies. You can make them with powdered sugar for a more tender, melt-in-your-mouth shortbread coookie or with granulated sugar. You can roll them and use cookie cutters to make jam-filled shortbread cookies or press the dough in a mould to make these lavender shortbread. Egyptian shortbread are made with clarified butter so they are even more tender.
All roads lead to buttery goodness.
