Buttery, melt-in-the-mouth Cinnamon Shortbread is a must to add to your Fall and/or Christmas baking list

Buttery and melt-in-the-mouth, as shortbread should be – but this time, Cinnamon Shortbread, perfect to add to your Fall and/or Christmas baking !

These are so good, and the Cinnamon Honey glaze is absolutely divine.

This is one of the recipes which is always first on my baking list for the holidays, and I even bake these Shortbread cookies anytime during the year.

Baking shortbread is my favorite type of cookies, it is mix, bake and slice. No rolling out dough or bothering with cookie cutters.

I remember the first batch I baked, it did not last long, and after that I decided to always, but always bake at least two batches.

The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled, which is great for the holidays. A cookie container (or two) can be filled quickly.
