2 cups flour
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tblsp coarse, or sparkling, sugar
1/4 tsp salt
optional: icing as desired
Preheat oven to 325°.
Add flour, butter, granulated sugar, and salt into a bowl and blend with a mixer on low speed until blended. Increase to medium and mix until dough is no longer crumbly and just comes together.
Use cookie molds or press dough evenly into a pan and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
Bake until golden brown, about 30-40 minutes.
In the pan, cut still-warm shortbread into wedges or slices. Let cool, then flip and separate.
Ryan: I would give the recycled bikes, fun/different gift.
Sara: Oliver plates!
Sara: After all of these years, I am still a sucker for the stainless steel snack bowl. I like the small one with the set of appetizer spreaders. Or the set of 3 stacking acrylic boxes filled with hard candy (a different flavor per tier) and tied with a ribbon.
Ali: Elf candle holders and taper candles.
Raymond: Lotus Candleholder or a variety of mini beaker glass bud vases like joyce, or the curve…
Curtis: The bag vase full of fresh flowers. So fun and inexpensive as well.
Judy: A set/4 bloom etched champagne flutes…and most likely in multiples—the price is so good!!
April: I think the beaker glass pitcher, stirrer and marta glasses are super stylish and very affordable! Tres classy!
