Santa's Shortbread Bites

"No matter what your baking needs are this Christmas, these shortbread bites will help you check off your holiday baking list!"

2-1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, cut into large cubes
1 Tablespoon each of red and green decorating sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a food processor, combine flour, cornstarch and sugar.  Add cubed butter and process until mixture resembles fine sand.  Add red and green decorating sugars and mix until sugars are distributed throughout dough.  Press dough into an 8x8 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Run a knife horizontally and vertically through the dough, pushing down about half the thickness of the dough, to create squares.  (Scoring the dough will make it easier to cut the shortbread when it's cool.)  Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.  Allow to cool for about 20 minutes and cut through shortbread along scored lines.  ENJOY!
