280 grams all-purpose flour

2 grams salt

226 grams unsalted butter, room temperature

60 grams powdered (confectioners or icing) sugar

4 grams pure vanilla extract

methood: In a separate bowl whisk the flour with the salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter until smooth (about 1 minute). Add the sugar and beat until smooth (about 2 minutes). Beat in the vanilla extract. Gently stir in the flour mixture just until incorporated. latten the dough into a disk shape, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill the dough for at least an hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) with the rack in the middle of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to 1/4 inch (.5 cm) thick. Cut into rounds or whatever shapes you wish using lightly floured cookie cutter. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet and place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. This will firm up the dough so the cookies will maintain their shape when baked. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly brown. Cool on rack.

    Shortbread Cookie Recipe

    Shortbreads:

    2 cups (280 grams) all-purpose flour

    1/4 teaspoon (2 grams) salt

    1 cup (2 sticks) (226 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature

    1/2 cup (60 grams) powdered (confectioners or icing) sugar

    1 teaspoon (4 grams) pure vanilla extract

    ** Shortbread dough is very versatile and while delicious plain, you can make them more flavorful by adding about 1/2 cup (90 grams) of chocolate chips or cut up semisweet chocolate, 1 tablespoon of instant espresso powder for a coffee taste, 1 teaspoon of
    ground cinnamon, or 1 tablespoon of finely chopped orange or lemon zest. The texture of shortbread can also be changed by replacing 1/4 cup (35 grams) of the flour with rice flour to give them a slightly crunchy texture. Or, for a more delicate tasting shortbread with a melt-in-your-mouth texture, replace 1/2 cup (70 grams) of the flour with cornstarch (corn flour). Shortbreads can be cut into various shapes using your favorite cookie cutter, baked in a tart pan, or else as fingers. If you like, sprinkle the baked cookies with granulated white sugar or dip the ends of the shortbread in melted chocolate. The variations are endless but all produce a wonderful tasting cookie that is perfect any time of the day.***
