Shortbread Cookies

Despite feeling sick, I attempted to make shortbread the other day and failed miserably. My advice is to let the butter rest at room temperature until it is totally soft. The butter must be soft in order for this recipe to work. I made the mistake of beating the butter while it was still partly chilled which resulted in pie crust cookies. You don’t want that.
