Vanilla Shortbread Recipe

1-hour 15-Minute recipe Serves 12
Vanilla shortbread rolled in snowy sugar makes a perfect holiday treat. This shortbread recipe's batter is super-easy, and has an extra benefit from using a hand-mixer: fluffier dough! Adding extra air to the dough makes these cookies airy and melt-in-your-mouth amazing.
