From http://www.joyofbaking.com/shortbreads/shortbreadcookies.html (Adjusted recipe because I didn’t have so much butter at my house…

Ingredients

  • 83 grams all-purpose flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 73 grams unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 20 grams icing sugar
  • 1 few drop of vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Whisk the flour with the salt. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, use your electric mixer to beat the butter until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add the sugar and beat until smooth.
  4. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gently stir in the flour mixture just until incorporated.
  6. Form the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill the dough until firm.
  7. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to thickness of 1/4 inch (.6 cm).
  9. Cut into shapes using a lightly floured cookie cutter.
  10. Place on the prepared baking sheets and place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
  11. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) with the rack in the middle of the oven.
  12. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, or until cookies are very lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

It’s AWESOME! I love Walker’s butter shortbread. It’s my favorite comfort food.
