Say hello to our Spiced Christmas Shortbread Cookies!
Filled with warm and fragrant spices, they have crispy golden edges and melt-in-your-mouth crumbs. These little biscuits are fun to make with little ones who can help you cut them into adorable holiday shapes.
We like to keep our shortbread cookies simple with a dusting of icing sugar but, if you prefer, you could get creative with fun decorative icing.
