  5. Hi Jessica! I've been searching for the perfect easy shortbread recipe, and honest to goodness I think I've tried about 10 different recipes this year but none of them come out "just right". Couple questions - for the butter, is it salted or unsalted? Room temp, softened, or melted? Do you sift your flour? Is it just granulated white sugar or icing/powdered sugar? These are such pretty little cookies, I can't wait to try them! :) Thanks!

    1. They are seriously delicious! I used salted butter and softened it just a bit. I don't sift the flour. For the cookies you use regular granulated sugar and for the glaze it's confectioners sugar :) Hope that helps!
