A simple shortbread cookie has to be my all time favourite. There is something so purely festive about it.

Crisp buttery goodness.
This is what the holidays are all about!
(And the nice thing about shortbread is that it's super easy... I managed to pull this off with a 3 week old newborn baby in the house!)
