Heart Shortbread

We love baking! Our prep. for Valentines Day and basically any special day, involves making shortbread. I use an old recipe from home that everyone raves about. It is very complicated... it only has four ingredients!

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  1. Cream butter and sugar until soft.
  2. Beat in sieved flour and cornstarch.
  3. Kneed well and cut into fingers or shapes.
  4. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes depending on thickness.

What better sensory play than fresh shortbread dough? Although quite a bit gets eaten before it makes it to the oven! We did add a wee bit of red food colouring for Valentines day.

Pretty hearts all in a row.

Happy Valentines Day!
