"I love shortbread cookies & esp this version by 1 of my favorite bloggers, Jennifer @ bakeorbreakdotcom. She describes herself as an amateur baker, but there is nothing the least bit amateur about her delicious "low effort, high reward" recipes. She has never failed me & I continue to find treasures like this recipe among her collection that I feel compelled to share. ENJOY!"

Using an electric mixer on med speed, beat the preserves, butter & vanilla until well-combined. Transfer the butter mixture to a sheet of plastic wrap. Shape into a thin disc or a log. Wrap & freeze for 1-2 hrs (or until firm).
