Celebrate the Holidays with Cookies and Win Netflix Subscription

Baking together is a tradition in our home. It is lots of fun to make our favourite cookies and cakes especially during the holidays. These treats come in handy when we have leisure conversations and watch Netflix. There are lots of shows and movies to cozy up and watch on Netflix this holiday! 
This is our family's favourite shortbread recipe.

11 tbsp butter
1/3 cup sugar plus sprinkling
1 cup flour
5 tbsp cornstarch

I used salted butter, but the choice is yours. Beat the sugar and butter for about 2 to 3 minutes until it is light and fluffy. Then sift the flour and cornstarch, and add it to the sugar mixture using your hands to make a dough.

Line a 7" springform removable bottom pan with parchment paper. Then place the dough mixture in the pan and press to fill the pan by making the top smooth and even. Score the wedges or squares using a sharp knife. Then prick all over the dough with a fork. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill for an hour.

Bake in a 325F preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes until it is golden and firm. After baking score the shortbread and sprinkle with reserved sugar. Cool completely and cut the pieces. This shortbread will stay well for about 5 day in an airtight container.
