Picture of Captain America Shortbread
These cookies are based off the shield of the one and only CAPTAIN AMERICA!   I made these once before for a party, and they were a big success.  Bear in mind that these do take a while to make, but i think they are worth the wait.

Picture of Ingredients
What you will need:

2 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1/2 cup sugar (or more if you're feeling sweet)
a couple drops flavoring--I use almond and vanilla extract, but you can use whatever you like
red and blue food coloring

various circle cookie cutters (if you don't have any you can use the top of cups or make stencils to cut around)
rolling pin
Oh, I love this! I would love to eat Captain America's shield!!!
