Melt In Your Mouth Shortbread

2 1/2 Ccups All-purpose flour
6  Tbsp. Sugar
1  Cup Unsalted butter, cold and cut into 10-12 pieces
1/4  tsp. Salt

Preheat oven to 325°F

In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, sugar and salt. Pulse to combine. Add butter to flour mixture and pulse until mixture looks like very coarse sand.
Press evenly into 13×9-inch baking sheet.

Bake for 25-32 minutes, until the corners turn golden.

Let cool for 5 minutes, then gently score with a knife (a pizza cutter works wonderfully), cutting the shortbread into 30 pieces.

Allow to cool completely in the pan.

Store in an airtight container.

Makes 30 pieces


Add zest of one lemon or one orange (or both) for a bright, summery variation. Add 1 tsp cinnamon, ginger or cardamom for spicier versions.

If you have vanilla sugar, this would be an excellent recipe to use it in.


About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
