Shortbread Cookies With Only Three Ingredients - Perfect for your Mid-Workout Break

Why did I say mid-workout break? 

Basically I've got the afterburners going, and need the fuel.  My workouts are two plus hours of cardio.  After an hour I sit on the bumper of my Jeep and have a cookie and a thermos of ice cold water.

For athletes, keeping fueled up is important, and I am at the point where I have a get out of jail free card to eat junk once I hit my Macro Nutrients.

So you folks benefit with me finding new and easy recipes.

First - All ingredients are to be room temperature.  Butter has to be creamed.

Second - Once the cookie dough is made, throw it into the refrigerator and get it cold.  It rolls out better that way!


  1. 2 Sticks of ROOM TEMPERATURE Butter (One Cup, 8 Ounces).  I use unsalted.
  2. 1/2 Cup Sugar (Powdered but granulated or other will work.)
  3. 2 Cups All Purpose Flour


  1. Cream Butter in mixer.
  2. Add in your Sugar to mixer.
  3. Add in the Flour to mixer.
  4. Get everything smooth and evenly mixed.
  5. Chill dough in refrigerator until firm.
  6. Roll out dough on well floured surface to about 1/2 inch thick.  (a little more than 1 CM).
  7. Preheat Oven to 350F, Medium, 180C.
  8. Place Cookies onto Parchment Paper or Silpat.

Baking: This is done by eye, but bake for 15-20 minutes, until the edges start to turn a little tan.  Or to taste.  I'm not your boss, just your recipe book!  :)
