My Christmas baking has begun!  Beginning with last weekend, I plan to bake at least one batch of Christmas cookies per week until Christmas arrives.

And, first on display is . . . Martha Stewart's Basic Shortbread!  This seems a dull name for such a tasty cookie, but it is true that it is very simple.

Martha suggests dipping the cooled cookies in chocolate but, instead, I finished them off with a toss in vanilla bean scented sugar while they were still warm.  These cookies are so delicious, I've had to use a significant amount of willpower in order to avoid eating the whole batch.

Nothing says Christmas like shortbread!
