Costco Butter Shortbread Cookies Review

Simple and oh so delicious!

Please note that this review was not paid for or sponsored by any third party. I purchased this product with my own money and the opinions in this review are strictly my own. I am not affiliated with Costco or any of its suppliers. I am just a fan of the company. I write these reviews to help my fellow shoppers.

It’s my absolute favorite time of the year and Costco has some of my favorite products out for only a short time. They currently are offering two amazing Kirkland Signature Cookies. The Kirkland Signature Ginger Cookies as well as the cookies I’m reviewing today! The Kirkland Signature Butter Shortbread.


SHORTBREAD LOVERS! These are made for you. They’re soft, buttery, melt in your mouth and delicious. I don’t even really love shortbread because I’m a chocolate fanatic but I have no problem eating one of these delicious holiday treats sure to make my belly bulge. The shortbread isn’t overly sweet and you can definitely taste that they use real butter. They’re baked the perfect amount, just so they’re soft but also very lightly crisp. If these were covered in chocolate or icing it would be doing the cookies a disservice and ruin the delicious simplicity of the cookie. Also I wouldn’t bother dropping $2 or more for a single shortbread cookie from a bakery because these Kirkland Signature Butter Shortbread Cookies taste just as good. They would make perfect base cookies for kids to decorate with icing or candies. They also pair super well with a cup of Costco Starbucks Hot Cocoa!


I paid $9.99 Canadian for a box of 24 Kirkland Signature Butter Shortbread Cookies.


Seriously you could put these out for Christmas and say they came from a fancy bakery and nobody would guess you’re lying. The cookies freeze well (I freeze mine the day I purchase them) and the best before date is about a week from the date I purchased the cookies.


What is shortbread made of? Basically butter, flour and sugar. So these are naturally going to be high in calories, fat and sugar but this is the season to loosen your belt a little and enjoy a few delicious treats! The ingredients list is short and sweet and I’m appreciative that Costco has used butter instead of margarine or lard in these cookies.

Taste: 10/10

Cost: 9.5/10

Nutrition: Tis the season to not worry about nutrition!

Convenience: 10/10

Do you prefer crispy or soft shortbread?! Would you buy these for the holidays?! Why or why not?
