5-Minute Shortbread (plus baking)

My husband was just commenting on how expensive store-bought shortbread is. Homemade is so easy and can be ready in 5 minutes.  My son has never been a sweet fan but even he looks forward to shortbread at Christmas.  My version is super quick and uses only three ingredients!  Honestly it should take more than 5 minutes to whip them together.  Makes a great gift.

1 cup of butter
2 1/2 cups of flour
3/4 cup of sugar
*sprinkles if you wish

Take a large microwaveable bowl.  Place butter and melt in microwave until liquid.  Stir in flour and sugar and make a ball.  Make sure it is well mixed.

Spread out dough on greased baking sheet. Pat into a square.  Bake for 25 minutes at 325 degrees.

I used red sprinkles.

Remove from oven and coat with sprinkles if using.  Cut into squares while still warm.

Let cool.  Enjoy!
