Description

For any baking enthusiast, classic, buttery shortbread is a go-to recipe. After all, with a short list of almost-always-on-hand ingredients and a recipe that is quick to put together, these pat-into-the-pan, prick, and, bake shortbreads are in the oven before you know it. You can make this traditional style shortbread, or you can add a bit of flair: a teaspoon of vanilla extract, or, a tablespoon of lemon or orange zest; an equivalent amount of poppy seeds, or, 1/4 cup of finely ground hazelnuts or pecans. You could also substitute 2 tablespoons of the all-purpose flour with an equivalent of instant espresso powder and some cocoa powder. Uses KitchenAid® Stand Mixer and Sifter + Scale Attachment.

    Directions

    1. Special Equipment: KitchenAid® Stand Mixer; KitchenAid® Sifter + Scale Attachment; 8-in/20-cm round cake pan or springform pan; parchment paper
    2. Generously butter the bottom and sides of the cake pan. Line the bottom of the pan with a circle of parchment paper, and butter the parchment. Set aside.
