Princess Shortbread Cookies

A simple sprinkled shortbread cookie perfect for special occasions or an afternoon treat!


  • 1 cup butter - firm
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons Princess Flavoring
  • 2 Happy Tablespoons sprinkles


  • In a mixing bowl cream the butter with an electric mixer
  • Sift together the corn starch, powdered sugar and flour - yes I hate sifting as much as the next but it will be worth it.
  • Add the sifted mixture a little at a time to the creamed butter as the mixer is running on low.
  • Add the Princess flavoring
  • Once all is combined add the sprinkles and mix on low for just enough time to incorporate them.
  • Pull the dough together, wrap in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  • On a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet place about 1 inch balls of dough spaced out, with the bottom of a glass give each dough ball a light press to flatten.
  • Bake in a pre-heated 350° oven for 7-9 minutes.
  • Serve as is or allow to cool, drizzle with icing and add more sprinkles.
