Whimsy and wonderings about everyday life

Christmas Shortbread Bites!

Christmas shortbread bites

These Christmas shortbread bites (foreground) from All Foods, All Drinks, All Love, are festive and tasty – and they’re soooo easy to make..

At our house, at least, it’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas,  with all the baking going on!

Rachel’s pictures at her blog are much prettier than mine, but the results are the same. Her shortbread bites are easy and delicious and very festive.

The soft cookies in the background are brown sugar cookies. They are also quite good. I used Grandma Brown’s Brown Sugar Drop Cookies recipe from Allrecipes.com for those.

I made these and the peppermint bark below (also from Allrecipes) during a midnight baking and candy making marathon because I had a sick teen in the house and was up anyway. However, they are also kid-friendly. They’d be great for teacher presents, or simply as a way to spend some time with your child or children, having fun.

  1. So glad you made and loved the shortbread! Merry Christmas!

    • My husband *loved* them, as did our young neighbors, who stopped by for milk and cookies.Most of the two batches of shortbread cookies are now gone, and those boys go on taste, not looks :-). Merry Christmas and thanks for a great, crowd-pleasing recipe! I foresee some in green, gold, and purple for Mardi Gras…:-)
