There's a reason the Girl Scouts sell shortbread every year — because the tender, crumbly butter cookie never goes out of style! For a new flavor, don't overlook the addition of spices like cardamom and anise, or dried berries, fruit peels, and nuts. Feeling even more far out? Keep the same short base, but color the recipe with grassy-green matcha or parmesan and black pepper for a savory twist.
