Confetti Shortbread Cookies

Updated: Dec 16, 2018

I am thankful a coworker pointed me towards this recipe for an easy shortbread cookie which I made in mass this year for two cookie exchange parties.

The bite-size pieces are addicting, my family could not stop sneaking bites as I baked them in the kitchen.

Confetti Shortbread Cookies


1 cup (226g) salted butter, cold and diced into 1 Tbsp pieces (I use Kerrygold Irish Salted Butter, 227g)

2/3 cup (142g) granulated sugar

1/2 tsp almond extract

2 1/4 cups (318g) all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons nonpareils sprinkles

Use parchment paper or plastic wrap to line a jelly roll pan or rimmed baking sheet, leaving a 1-inch overhang on all sides. Spray with a non-stick spray or use butter to grease.
