Today is the day! It's Canada Day! The big 150 for the country. And to celebrate with my drinks I made, I baked some more cookies!
This time it was a classic Shortbread cookie with red icing. This is one of the simplest and minimal ingredients cookie recipe I know.
It's a recipe my granny used, passed it down to my mother, who passed it down to me. Filling the homes of 3 generations of Canadian women. What a better way to celebrate.
Let's jump in that kitchen! :
- 1/2 cup of Cornstarch
- 1/2 cup of Icing Sugar
- 1 cup of All Purpose Flour
- 3/4 cup of Butter
Now the rest is just as simple :
- Sift the Cornstarch, icing sugar, and flour together
- Add in the butter, and use your hands to mix together the butter and the powders
- Once it is made in dough form from kneading. Make 1" balls, filling about 8 balls to a pan. Grab yourselves a spoon to push each ball flat.
- Pop these cookies in the oven at 300F for 20 Minutes.
- The icing is of course optional, but in case you wanted some. I used Cake Mate's Decorating Icing Sugar in Red/Rouge.
Let them cool before placing on a drying rack.
Bring them to a BBQ, over to a family member, or just keep them to yourself.
My plans for Canada is to have some fun, play some boards and go to a friend's Canada Day party. Avoiding downtown at all costs, it will be too crazy.
