Shortbread Surprises

Brenda surprised me with these shortbread surprises!

And they are yummy! She conveniently included the recipe so I can share it with you.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 T. instant coffee granules
pinch salt
1 cup unsalted butter
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Combine all dry ingredients well. Cream butter and vanilla. Add dry ingredients in batches. Cover and place in fridge for 1 hour. Roll into 1" balls and place 1 1/2" apart on parchment lined baking sheets. Flatten in a criss-cross with fork and bake at 300F for 20-25 minutes. Cool and enjoy!

Thanks Brenda!
