- 2 cups butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
Gather all ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Cream softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Stir in vanilla; add flour and mix well until combined.
Fill cookie press with the dough and form cookies onto two ungreased cookie sheets, spacing them about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are just starting to turn golden brown.
Remove the cookie sheets from the oven, and set them on a wire cooling rack for 2 minutes. Then transfer the shortbread cookies to the rack to cool completely.
