Making these shortbread cookies was all milo’s idea. And he was a great helper,
They only use a few ingredients. You could use red food coloring and make them red, for an even more festive treat.

1 ½ cups earth balance
½ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup powdered sugar
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour

  1. Preheat oven to 300 F.
  2. With a flat beater, cream earth balance until light and smooth.
  3. Add granulated sugar and mix until well blended.
  4. Add powdered sugar and salt and beat until fully combined.
  5. Add the flour and beat until fully incorporated.
  6. Roll the cookie dough out. I was having a hard time with a rolling pin, so I just grabbed it in chunks and flattened it with my hands. This seemed to work much better. Cut out shape and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 minutes.

Today I spent my day at Heritage Prarie Farm photographing Martha and Alex’s wedding. Everything about today was absolutely perfect. The weather was lovely. The food was absolutely amazing. I think they told me about 85 percent of it was grown on the farm and picked the night before. It was so fresh and delicious. These are some of my favorite kinds of wedding to shoot – can’t wait to get through the photographs! More to come soon on my other blog.

Here’s a little guy I whipped up using this pattern, using fabric scraps and some felt. He was really easy and fun to make – I want to make a whole army of them. I will for sure be making some for milo’s little friend’s birthdays!
