Bird Nest Shortbread Cookies

Here’s What You’ll Need:

– 1 cup butter
– 2/3 cup sugar
– 2 cups flour
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
– Hard shelled candy eggs (I used peanut M&Ms

-In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar

-Blend in vanilla
-Mix in flour and salt on low speed
-The dough will be really crumbly at first, but the more you mix the more it will come together, be patient with it.
-Cover the bowl and refrigerate it for about 30 minutes. This will make the dough easier to work with
-Preheat oven to 350 degree
-Line a large baking sheet or multiple baking sheets with parchment paper
-Roll the dough into small balls & place on parchment papered cookie shee
-Take your thumb and press it down into the center of the dough balls. This will create the bird nest effect
-Bake 15 minutes or until golden around the edges
-As soon as you take the cookies out of the oven press the candy eggs into the center of them to set them in
-Let cookies cool completely & serve!
