Cookies are made of butter and love...
It's been raining all week.. and I've been bored... and one thing I love to do when bored is Bake.. So, I stumbled upon a Dog Biscuit Recipe on Mary Janes Farm Forum and then decided to make some Cookies for the puppies..
But, I didn't stop there, I decided to try out shortbread cookies while I was at it... they came out really good. I used a basic Shortbread Cookie recipe.. :)
• 2 sticks Plus 2 Tablespoons Salted Butter, Softened
• 1 cup Sugar
• 2 cups All-purpose Flour
• 1 cup (scant) Corn Starch
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar together. Sift in flour and cornstarch and blend together using a pastry cutter until the ingredients all come together. (If mixture seems excessively dry, cut in 1 more tablespoon of butter—but only if you really need it.)
Form dough into a big ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate 20 minutes.
Roll onto a lightly floured surface and cut into rounds. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. Bake for 20 minutes. Do not allow shortbread to brown; the edges should have the faintest golden tinge. Check your oven sooner if it runs hot.
But I used Splenda :)
