Maple Shortbread Cookies

We made these simple shortbread cookies recently and had fun making different shapes and letters, what a fun way to learn baking and letters!

  • 5 oz butter diced and a little extra for greasing
  • 8 oz of plain flour and some for dusting
  • 4 oz sugar
  • one tablespoon of maple syrup 
  1. grease a baking tray with butter
  2. sieve the flour and rub in the butter with fingers until it looks like bread crumbs
  3. stir in sugar and maple syrup and make a firm dough
  4. roll it out onto a floured surface to about 1 inch thickness 
  5. have fun making different shapes 
  6. bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden
  7. dust with confectioners sugar

While visiting the Charleston Tea Plantation  I got some cookie cutters in the shape of a tea pot, can't wait to make these again soon :-)

What cookie cutter shape would you like?
