Prep Time
1 hr
Total Time


1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 teaspoons multi-colored nonpareils

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 325°F. Line 8-inch square baking pan with plastic food wrap, leaving 1-inch overhang. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, sugar and almond extract in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour and salt. Beat until well mixed. Stir in nonpareils.

  3. STEP 3

    Knead mixture 4-5 times in bowl until dough forms a ball. Pat dough evenly into prepared pan. Use plastic wrap to lift dough from pan. Cut dough into 1/2-inch squares. Gently place squares, 1/2 inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets; discard plastic wrap. Bake 13-15 minutes or until bottoms just begin to brown.

Tip #1

Avoid last minute holiday hassle–make these sweet tidbits before the holiday season. Store between sheets of waxed paper in container with tight-fitting lid; freeze for up to 2 months.

Tip #2

A decorative glass or mug filled with these Christmas shortbread tidbits makes a great holiday gift for teachers or neighbors.
