Heritage Recipe

Mom's Shortbread

Mom was born March 10, 1898 on Canadian Prairies in the wheat-growing region. She entered Grey Nuns Nursing School in her late teens. She and four classmates were the first class to graduate in 1921 with Registered Nurse designation. She remained active in nursing until age of 70, meanwhile gifting us with these wonderful cookies for Christmas. My children would search the house if they knew there was a box of them around. You can't eat them and not smile.

Mom passed away at the age of 94 and is buried on the prairies with a stone marker saying "Pioneer Nurse."

Ingredients
8 ounces butter, softened
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup powdered sugar
