Tossed in a Mixture Of…

Most, if not all of the recipes, call for tossing the warm baked cookies in a mixture of  powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, spiced powdered sugar or a mixture of ground cinnamon, sugar & grated chocolate. I decided to make these buttery little beauties because I had never tossed baked warm cookies in a mixture of cinnamon/sugar/grated chocolate  and couldn’t wait to try them. The end result was utterly delicious!!

A Cookie by Another Name

I have found one thing that is for certain, there are numerous recipes for ‘shortbread’ cookies, with just as many names. Shortbread cookies are all easy to make and require a few basic ingredients. The ingredients are usually butter or lard, powdered sugar or granulated sugar, flour, baking powder or soda and salt. Sometimes ground cinnamon is added to the dough, sometimes not. Vanilla extract is usually added also for flavor.

After Baking

After baking, most often the cookies, balls, or crescents are sprinkled, tossed, rolled, dropped or shaken in a cinnamon/sugar mixture or in plain powdered sugar, making them a little messy but so worth it! For an added twist of flavor, use spiced powdered sugar. All shortbread cookies are light, golden, crumbly, buttery and best of all, irresistible. Whatever name you use to call these cookies, they are super delicious. In my humble culinary opinion, anytime is a good time for these little gems.
