Canookie Time

Hey everyone,

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 : 

  1.  Sift the Cornstarch, icing sugar, and flour together
  2. Add in the butter, and use your hands to mix together the butter and the powders
  3. 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. 
  4. Pop these cookies in the oven at 300F for 20 Minutes.  
  5. 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.  

Happy Baking!!

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.
