Christmas Shortbread Bites

These little shortbread squares look so festive, I knew I had to make them as part of our holiday treats this year.

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour 
1/4 cup sugar 
1 stick butter, cold, cut into pieces 
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp red and green sprinkles 

 Preheat oven to 325.

In food processor, pulse flour and sugar until combined. Add butter and vanilla and pulse until dough begins to come together. Place dough in medium bowl. With hand, gently knead in sprinkles until evenly blended and dough forms a ball.

On lightly floured waxed paper, pat dough into 8" by 5" rectangle and freeze for15 minutes. Cut dough into 1/2-inch squares. Place squares, 1/2 inch apart, on large cookie sheet.

Bake cookies 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned on bottom.
