Today is National Cookie Day. Perfectly tucked into the holiday season, it arrives alongside the time of year when special family recipes take over. According to tasteofhome.com, you won't need a fancy technique to replicate the the most popular cookie in New Hampshire. It only has three ingredients, and you could make it tonight!

Buttery shortbread cookies took the top spot in their national poll. Unsalted butter, flour, and sugar are all you'll need. If you want to get real fancy, you can add confectioners' sugar. You can have them in a little over a half hour too! According to Taste of Home, preheat oven to 325°. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in flour. Press dough into an ungreased 9-in. square baking pan. Prick with a fork.
Bake until light brown, 30-35 minutes. Cut into squares while warm. Cool completely on a wire rack. If desired, dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: 16 cookies.
