Check out my jigsaw puzzle shaped cookies! Yes...I am just about willing to try anything when it comes to jigsaw puzzles so why not jigsaw puzzle cookies too! This was a real fun jigsaw puzzle project and tasted delicious if I do say so myself. They were a big hit in my house. And even I was impressed with the taste seeings how I dislike the kitchen much less baking too.


I was very lucky to locate these the jigsaw puzzle cookie cutters and baked the following cookies for Christmas.

This is by far THE most delicious shortbread cookie recipe I ever tasted.....feel free to give it a try even without the jigsaw puzzle shaped cookies cutters. Look below for the link to download a printable copy of this recipe. 

Recipe For The Jigsaw Puzzle Shaped Cookies - Old Fashion Shortbread Cookies

 Pre Time: 20 mins  Cook Time: 20 mins

Serves 3 - 4 dozen depending on size


  • 2 cups butter (1 pound) at room temperature
  • 1 cup icing sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup corn starch
  • 3 cups flour
  • Maraschino cherries or baking gums for the centers (optional).


  • Cream together the butter and icing sugar very well until very smooth and creamy. No lumps of butter should be visible.
  • Blend in the vanilla extract.
  • Sift together the flour and corn starch.
  • Blend slowly into the creamed mixture until a soft dough forms.
  • Split dough into 2 equal round portions.
  • Wrap the dough rounds in plastic wrap and chill for a couple of hours at least.
  • You can freeze one of the cookie dough portions for later if you like.
  • This dough will also last in the fridge for 3-4 days so that you can bake a few up at a time and enjoy them fresh from the oven if you like.
  • To bake the cookies preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Roll the dough out to a little less than ¼ of an inch on a lightly floured surface. Use a 2 inch cookie cutter (or holiday shaped cookie cutters) to cut out the cookies.
  • Place the cookies on the parchment paper a half inch apart. Add a half maraschino or glacé cherry to the center, or a baking gumdrop if you like.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until they just start to turn brown at the edges.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes on the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container
