Pretzel Toffee Shortbread Cookies

I have a love affair with shortbread: I can’t ever get enough!

Pretzel Toffee Shortbread Cookies - these easy cookies have just 5 ingredients! Fast and foolproof, they're the BEST cookie ever!

What is your favorite cookie? Do you have one kind that you just can never stop eating? If I’m being totally honest, I have lots of those kinds of cookies – peanut butter, chocolate chip, sugar cookies – but my most favorite EVER is shortbread. I can eat my weight in shortbread!

Shortbread is so versatile too. It can be used as a crust or made plain. It can be dipped in chocolate or you can add things to it (like, say, chocolate chips, pretzels, and toffee bits). As a base recipe, it’s a blank slate and I love making new recipes with my baking arsenal.

Now, I have a shortbread recipe that I love. But if I’m being honest, my favorite shortbread recipe is actually from a Krusteaz mix.
