Categories     dessert

Time 1h15m

Yield 20 cookies

Number Of Ingredients 6

3/4 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 to 7 ounces very good semisweet chocolate, finely chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix together the butter and 1 cup of sugar until they are just combined. Add the vanilla. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour and salt, then add them to the butter-and-sugar mixture. Mix on low speed until the dough starts to come together. Dump onto a surface dusted with flour and shape into a flat disk. Wrap in plastic and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Roll the dough 1/2-inch thick and cut with a 3 by 1-inch finger-shaped cutter. Place the cookies on an ungreased baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the edges begin to brown. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • When the cookies are cool, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put 3 ounces of the chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave on high power for 30 seconds. (Don't trust your microwave timer; time it with your watch.) Stir with a wooden spoon. Continue to heat and stir in 30-second increments until the chocolate is just melted. Add the remaining chocolate and allow it to sit at room temperature, stirring often, until it's completely smooth. Stir vigorously until the chocolate is smooth and slightly cooled; stirring makes it glossier.
  • Drizzle 1/2 of each cookie with just enough chocolate to coat it.

Time 1h25m

Yield 30 cookies

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 drop almond extract
1 1/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour, plus extra to dust
3/4 cup ground almonds
Zest of 1 lemon

Let cool on the baking sheets for 3 or 4 minutes before transferring to wire cooling racks to cool completely, or just eat warm from the oven.


Classic Shortbread image

This satisfying shortbread is as easy as it gets. It's simultaneously crisp, crumbly and tender because we've added a little cornstarch to the flour. And granulated sugar gives the cookies their gorgeous golden color.

Provided by Food Network Kitchen

Categories     dessert

Time 1h55m

Yield 36 bars

Number Of Ingredients 5

3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus more for the pan
3 cups all-purpose flour (see Cook's Note)
6 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar


  • Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9-by-12-1/2-inch jelly roll pan and line it with parchment, then butter the paper.
  • Whisk together the flour, cornstarch and salt in a bowl. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes. Slowly add the flour mixture and beat on low until the dough is just combined; do not overwork.
  • Transfer the dough to the prepared pan, spreading it out as evenly as possible with a spatula. Cover with plastic wrap, then use your hands to press and flatten the dough into a smooth even layer. Remove the plastic and cut the dough with a sharp knife into approximately 1-by-3-inch bars. Use a fork to prick a decorative pattern into the tops.
  • Bake, rotating the pan from front to back halfway through, until golden, 60 to 70 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes in the pan, then re-cut the bars along the previous cuts. Carefully lift the bars off the parchment with a small spatula and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Store the cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Can a cookie that's so tender, so buttery and so delicate really only be 3 ingredients? Yes, it can!

And, since this shortbread can be made in under an hour, you can have tasty treats for tea parties, birthdays, showers and any occasion in between. Possibly the best part about this recipe is that it's up to you to get creative-keep it simple with classic shortbread or try dipping your finished cookie in melty chocolate for a showstopping finish. But that's not all-you can mix in crushed toffee, chopped dried fruit and nuts for a twist on this timeless favorite.

Grandma's Shortbread Cookies image

This is a recipe for an amazingly dense and rich yet delicate cookie. You can't eat just one. When I make them, they're gone in a sitting and guests, family members and friends love and look forward to these. I can easily eat 10 in a row. The delicate nature is due to the cornstarch which most recipes I've come across do not include. They taste great with coffee and hot cocoa. This recipe comes from the back of an old box of Benson's Cornstarch. I kept the empty box for years in the hopes of making them one day. I always double the recipe to make about 50 small cookies.

Provided by Kayla in Montreal

Categories     Dessert

Time 20m

Yield 25 small cookies

Number Of Ingredients 4

1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup icing sugar (confectioner's sugar, in Canada it's 'icing')
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened (= 1 1/2 sticks, no margarine or substitute)


  • Sift together corn starch, icing sugar and flour.
  • With wooden spoon (or by hand as I do it), blend in butter until soft, smooth dough forms.
  • Shape into 1 inch (2.5 cm) balls.
  • Place 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, flatten with lightly floured fork.
  • Alternatively, roll dough to 1/4 inch (6 mm); cut into shapes with cookie cutters.
  • Decorate with candied cherries, colored sprinkles or nuts if desired.
  • Bake in 300 Fahrenheit oven for 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  • Cool on wire rack.
  • Tips:.
  • Do not substitute anything for the butter otherwise it's not a genuine shortbread cookie. ETA: Sadielady reminded that I forgot to mention the type of butter. Please forgive the D'oh moment. Please use unsalted butter. I never ever add salt. Any added salt in baked goods is not pleasing to my palate and too much salt is unhealthy but you may want to add a bit.
  • You can "nuke" aka microwave the butter to soften it rather than letting it sit out. It saves time and won't alter the taste. Just make sure you don't melt it.
  • If dough is too soft to handle then cover and chill for 30-60 minutes (15 minutes worked for me).
  • To make Crescents:.
  • Add 1/2 cup (125 ml) ground almonds or hazelnuts to flour mixture.
  • Shape into logs about 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick and 3 inches (7 cm) long.
  • Twist into crescent shapes.
  • When baked and cool, dip ends in melted chocolate.


Super-Easy Shortbread (3 Ingredients) image

The original recipe (called Shortbread Stars) came from my McCall's recipe box collection, which I subscribed to in the 80's. It was the first shortbread recipe I ever made, and I've never found a better one. The ingredients are so basic and easy that you'll soon have them memorized. Other recipes don't seem to produce the same perfect texture and flavor. My modification to the original was to try using a 9 x 13 pan rather than chilling, rolling out, and cutting into shapes. (Who has time for that, except on special occasions?) However, using a 9 x 13 pan changes the baking time, and the time given is approximate and based on my experience with a convection oven. I tend to overbake them a bit because I like shortbread very crisp. These are perfect with a cup of tea, of course, and ideal for tea parties or even a quick dessert for company. You nearly always have the ingredients on hand. Now you'll never need to buy (delicious but expensive) Walker's shortbread again!

Time 55m

Yield 24 cookies, 24 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 3

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour


  • Preheat oven to 300°.
  • Cream butter and sugar together.
  • Add flour and mix till texture is like clay.
  • Press dough into ungreased 9 x 13 inch pan, prick all over with a fork, and sprinkle with sugar (tilt pan to cover the top evenly, then shake excess sugar back into the sugar canister).
  • Bake for about 40-45 minutes (till very lightly browned--just golden around the edges).
  • Let stand for 5 minutes, then cut into 24 squares while warm.
  • Leave in pan to cool thoroughly. (Shortbread will not be crisp until cool.).
  • Less easy method: Chill dough. Roll into 1-inch balls, then press balls to about 1/4-inch thickness on ungreased cookie sheets with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar (sometimes you can find a glass with a pretty design on the bottom, like a star). Bake at 300° for about 20-25 minutes (until edges are very lightly browned).
  • Least easy method: Chill dough. Roll out to about 1/4-inch thickness, sprinkle with sugar, then cut with cookie cutters. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 300° for about 20-25 minutes (until edges are very lightly browned).
  • Variation: Add 2 tablespoons dried lavender to the creamed butter and sugar before adding flour. It may sound strange, but the flavor is subtle and elegant. Food-grade lavender is usually available in herb bins at health food stores, and I recently found it at a great price from Atlantic Spice online (their Lavender #1).
  • Variation: After cutting shortbread into squares (it will still be warm), scatter 1 cup of chocolate chips over the top, let the chocolate soften completely, then spread as a thin layer and let cool completely before removing from pan. (No need to sprinkle shortbread with sugar before baking if you plan to do this.).
  • Variation: Stir 1 cup chocolate chips or butterscotch chips into the dough before pressing into pan. You can also try melting the butterscotch over the top, as above. In England, you'll find "caramel shortbread," which has a layer of caramel and a layer of chocolate on top of the shortbread. It's wonderful (of course!). I've tried various ways of doing this and various kinds of caramel, but it's been a while and I don't remember what works best. It can be tricky not to make a mess!

The best things in life are simple and sweet, which is exactly why we love these shortbread cookie recipes so much.
