Christmas baking time has begun for our family and here in NJ it was the perfect weekend to do it since we were all stuck inside during the snow storm. I found these Christmas Shortbread Bites on Sarah's Kitchen which was our Secret Recipe Club assignment for the month. They are tiny little festive treats that are quite addicting, I have to admit our batch is almost completely gone. I plan on making them again this week to give out to the neighbors as little presents for the holidays. I don't know about you but I'm impatient and sometimes can't wait for butter to soften to start a batch of cookies. I also don't always have the time to roll the dough into balls or use cookie cutters so these shortbread bites worked out perfectly for me. Not only were they easy and simple to prepare I was able to make them immediately.
1 Stick I Can't Believe it's Not Butter - Cold & Cubed
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 1/4 Cup Flour
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp Green Sprinkles
1 Tbsp Red Sprinkles

Start by preheating your oven to 325 F. In your food processor combine together the flour and sugar. Cube your cold butter or margarine and add it into the bowl of the food processor.
