Best Shortbread Cookie Recipe

3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

Beat butter in a mixer until smooth. Add in sugar, vanilla and salt and continue to beat. With the mixer on low, add in the  flour and mix until incorporated.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes (or longer if you need!)

Roll the dough out and use a biscuit cutter to make circles.

Bake in a preheated oven, 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

Let them cool at room temperature.

Edible Pressed Flowers

Press edible flowers between 2 pieces of wax paper and set a heavy book on top for at least an hour. Longer is better.

Carefully peel off the top layer of wax paper. Some of the petals will stick. You can try to salvage them or just use the ones that didn’t stick.

Mix 1 teaspoon of meringue powder with 1 tablespoon powdered sugar and add a few drops of water until you have a paste. That will be your glue for the flower petals.

Paint a small amount of the paste on the back of the edible pressed flower and place on the cookie!
