Here's another holiday treat idea. Shortbread is so simple but so good, who can resist that sweet and savory buttery taste! Using a quality butter (like Kate's homemade) is key since butter is the star in this recipe. Wrap a few of them up and you have yourself a gift!
For the recipe:
- 225 grams (16 tablespoons) butter
- 2 grams (1 teaspoon) sea salt
- 70 grams (1/3 cup) sugar
- 225 grams (1 3/4 cup) all purpose flour
- 75 grams (3/4 cup) corn starch
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
Cream butter, sugar, zest and salt.
Sift the flour and corn starch together, then add to the butter and mix until just combined.
Bake in a bar shape (loaf pan works great) at 325F until skewer comes out clean. Let cool a bit, then cut into bar shapes with serrated knife.
