This is a simple spin on a classic cookie! Funfetti Shortbread makes an old fashioned treat fun!
Can we talk?
Like really talk? And can I count on you to be honest with me here.
Like really honest?
Is Funfetti over?
I mean, I’ve heard that it might be over. And I feel like I’m in denial.
Because how can sprinkles be OVER?
And really does anyone want to live in a sprinkle-less world?
The answer to that is no. Unequivocally.
But isn’t a shame how we are so fickle. One day things are awesome.amazing.omgcantlivewithout.
The next day they are overplayed.donetodeath.solastyear.boring.workedout.killed.
And I fall for it every time.
Ugh. I’m sorry.
But you know what? Not this time.
Not on my watch,
Sprinkles. Sprankels. Jimmies. Jammies.
You’ve got a permanent place in my heart o hearts.
Which brings us to my latest treat. Funfetti Shortbread.
First and foremost I am obsessed with shortbread. Just call me Granny.
And since everything is cuter with rainbow sprinkles I decided Funfetti Shortbread needed to be a thing.
And of course I used my favorite sprinkles. Can’t resist Mr. Sprinkles.
I used about half a cup in this recipes. TONS!
Just press the simple batter in a lined 9×9 pan.
And here’s how it will look after it’s baked…
Make sure you bake it long enough…that’s a problem I have. I am an underbaker for life. But with shortbread, it needs to be baked properly!
You’ll have a perfectly buttery, subtly sweet shortbread! That looks cute.
