Everyone has that one Christmas cookie that just tastes like the holidays… this is mine!

When I bite into one of these delicious shortbread cookies, it just brings me back to my Grandma’s kitchen filled with Nanaimo bars, sugar cookies and these beauties.

Shortbread cookies are actually very simple to make and require ingredients you likely already have on hand!

They are buttery, not overly sweet and literally melt in your mouth.

This recipe uses a cookie press to press these out.

If you don’t have a cookie press, you can grab one on Amazon or even just roll small balls and flatten them with a fork!

I am lucky enough to have an old vintage cookie press that I’ve had for years.  It creates the same beautiful cookies my grandma used to make!

Keep in mind that although these cookies use a cookie press, these are shortbread cookies and not a spritz cookie.  The texture and flavor are different as spritz cookies generally contain an egg.
