Simply Satisfying Shortbread

Oh my not only is this recipe simple, but it’s simply satisfying. Especially for those out there with a craving for something sweet… but not too sweet.

I got this recipe from a friend, Thanks Nicole! It only has 4 ingredients, plus whatever you use for your icing. I just used a little confectioners sugar and lemon juice for my icing. If I had cream cheese I would have added some of that to make it thicker.
