Ingredients: Smiley Face Shortbread

  • 100 grams Unsalted butter
  • 130 grams White flour
  • 50 grams Sugar (powdered sugar preferred)
  • 40 grams Cornstarch
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Milk or heavy cream
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 Cocoa (optional), as needed

How to Make Smiley Face Shortbread

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 13 steps you must follow to make Smiley Face Shortbread in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Bring the butter to room temperature, and soften in a bowl. Sift flour and cornstarch together.
  • Step 2
  • Mix the softened butter lightly, and add sugar and salt to mix in (Just mix lightly until everything is well combined.)
  • Step 3
  • Add the sifted dry ingredients to the bowl and mix. Add milk (or cream), and mix and knead until it becomes a dough. You can divide the dough in half and add cocoa to one portion if you like.
  • Step 4
  • Spread out a sheet of plastic wrap, form the dough into long, thin logs and wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for about an hour (overnight is preferable).
  • Step 5
  • Cut the dough into 1 cm slices, and line up on a baking sheet. Draw faces on the slices using a chopstick and digging rather deeply. (The faces are optional.)
  • Step 6
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes in a 170℃ (338 Fahrenheit) oven, and it's done! (Adjust the baking time depending on the thickness of the cookies and your oven.)
  • Step 7
  • I made a version without cornstarch, replacing it with more flour. They came out quite crumbly. These are square-faced.
  • Step 8
  • These are shaped like regular shortbread. Vary the thickness, size, shape... to your taste!
  • Step 9
  • This is a version with faces with hair.
  • Step 10
  • Add chopped dried fruit. The fruity acidity is really delicious.
  • Step 11
  • A bear shaped version with cute wrapping!
  • Step 12
  • Kitty shaped version.
  • Step 13
  • I used melted chocolate for hair. Straight bangs, side part, parted bangs... there are many variations!
