INGREDIENTS
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Whip butter with an electric mixer until fluffy. Stir in the confectioners’ sugar, cornstarch, and flour. Beat on low for one minute, then on high for 3 to 4 minutes. Drop cookies by spoonfuls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Watch that the edges don’t brown too much. Cool on wire racks.

Better for Bread flour for shortbread cookies?

Question by Kristi G: Better for Bread flour for shortbread cookies?
I need to make shortbread cookies tonight but just realized I only have about half the all-purpose flour I need. I do have some Better for Bread flour. Will this ruin the recipe if I use half B4B flour?
Ahh! I don’t have a sifter! I should be more prepared.

Best answer:

Answer by Dottie R
Sift your b4b flour before measuring and it should be fine for the shortbread cookies.

Don’t forget to add AP flour to your shopping list!
