Cookies spread because the fat in the cookie dough melts in the oven. If there isn’t enough flour to hold that melted fat, the cookies will over-spread. Spoon and level that flour or, better yet, weigh your flour. If your cookies are still spreading, add an extra 2 Tablespoons of flour to the cookie dough
Why did my shortbread cookies come out flat?
Start with butter that’s refrigerator-cold to prevent the dough from warming up too fast, which would make it greasy and difficult to roll. If the dough does get soft or sticky as you’re
rolling or cutting it, just put it in the refrigerator for 10 or 15 minutes to chill the butter.
But if it’s too crumbly, you have basically two choices: you can add more butter (or whatever fat you used in place of butter), or you can add a little liquid. If you choose to add liquid, I recommend kneading in one tablespoon at a time until the dough is just barely crumbly but holds its shape when pressed together.
The dough (and its variations) can be prepared and refrigerated overnight or frozen for up to 3 months, covered tightly with plastic wrap; thaw the frozen dough overnight in the refrigerator before using. The baking time for each variety of shortbread will vary depending on the kind of pan and cutters used.
