a week of christmas: shortbread wedges

Shortbread8I’m a big fan of all things wedge, from shoes to food, but I’ve always hated the name. Being only one letter short of another word (wedgies) that instills unappealing mental images, is generally something that you don’t want to happen when thinking of delicious food. Potato wedges, pizza wedges, and now shortbread wedges, there’s really only one way to describe it all: YUM! Treats that are served as a finger food for multiple people are the best kind to have around in the holiday season. Hence why these shortbread wedges just had to go to the top of my list of Christmas recipes. Besides, shortbread is synonymous with Christmas, is it not?

Shortbread11This is one dessert that you cannot go without this holiday season!

Shortbread1Shortbread Wedges:

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
