How To Make Funfetti Shortbread Bites

These buttery funfetti shortbread bites are a delicious treat you can share with the kids. We’ve decorated ours with fun and colorful rainbow sprinkles.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour
Total: 1 hour 20 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 1cupsalted buttercold and diced into 1 tbsp pieces
  • ¾cupgranulated sugar
  • ¾tspalmond extract
  • cupsall-purpose flour
  • tbspnonpareils sprinkles(divided)

Instructions

  1. Butter a 13 by 9-inch baking dish and line with 2 sheets of parchment paper (one horizontally and one vertically) leaving a 1-inch over hang on all sides, set aside.

  2. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer cream together butter and sugar until well combined (not light and fluffy, just well blended). Mix in almond extract.

  3. With mixer set on low speed slowly add in flour and mix until combined (it will take a while and will appear dry and sandy at first but it will start to come together). Mix in 2½ tablespoon of the sprinkles.

  4. Press dough into an even layer in a prepared baking dish (I did it with my hands first, then used the bottom of a flat measuring cup to help smooth it out).

  5. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon sprinkles over top and lightly press into dough. Chill dough in refrigerator 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  6. Lift dough from pan using parchment overhang on all sides. Cut into ½-inch squares using a large sharp knife.

  7. Transfer about ⅓ of the cookies to an unbuttered baking sheet and scatter cookies out spacing cookies ½-inch apart.

  8. Bake in preheated oven 8 – 12 minutes (keep remaining that aren’t currently baking refrigerated).

  9. Repeat process with remaining bites, adding them to a cool baking sheet. Cool completely, then transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature.
