Earlier this year, I found one of my favorite treasures ever – a McCall’s Cookbook from 1963 (a first printing). Within it is the most basic cookie – a brown-sugar shortbread cookie – and that’s what I put together here with a starry twist!
I am someone who likes to make things up as I go in the kitchen, but I couldn’t pass up on such a foundational find.

It isn’t in the best shape, but I like to think that it once belonged to someone who loved being in the kitchen as much as I do.
Note: You will need to refer to my recipe for Starfruit Jam for making these cookies. Make the dough first, and then the jam while the dough is refrigerated for a couple hours. You can also use this shortbread cookie recipe as pie crust – so good!
Pin this image for later!
