Shortbread Cookie Cake

Updated: Dec 17, 2023

These shortbread wedges are too good to resist...

As I stated in my previous post, I love making Christmas cookies. I will admit that it is a very thin line that one must draw when deciding what cookies to make. On one hand, you want your family to enjoy the sweets, and on the other, you don't want them to grow sick of it. I feel like a shortbread cookie gives that balance. :

It is sweet, but not too sweet and it has a wonderful texture that melts in your mouth.-GTG

This is a twist on the traditional shortbread cookie recipe. It is my Shortbread cookie cake recipe. I can't take credit for it, but I can take credit for admitting this is one of my favorite recipes to make. My family loves this dish as well. I recommend eating this dessert after a savory meal.

I know at Christmas we think of the traditional cookie recipes. I feel like it's time to switch it up and infuse a little more life into them so that we can continue to enjoy them and they can continue to be a part of our cooking world.

Let me know in the comments how this recipe came out.

Happy Eating!
