Coffee or Tea, It's All Right by ME! This Scotch Shortbread goes well with either. So, what are you waiting for, "D, Pull up a seat, take a piece or two, of this delicious Scotch Shortbread!
You'll think you died, and went to Ireland! I Promise! :D
(From My Recipe Box)
- 3 cups UnSalted Butter, (6 sticks) softened
- 1 1/5 cups Sugar
- 5 1/2 cups Unbleached / All-purpose Flour
- 1/2 cups Cornstarch
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 1 tsp. Salt
Preheat the oven to 350 F
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and cornstarch. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter and sugar, add a tsp. of vanilla and mix until blended. Pat Dough Out Into a 9 x 12 Inch Rectangle Pan, the dough will be approximately 1 inch thick. Score with sharp knife, almost all the way through, then cutting across, to make 2 inch rectangles, prick with fork about six times each piece, to let the heat through. Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly brown. (* keep checking in, make sure it doesn't get too brown) Turn off oven, and keep door ajar, cool for at least 2 hours before Cutting on Score Marks Cut into squares or rectangles, depending on what you like. I cut 4 inch long rectangles, and then, again in half, to 2 inch pieces (when you just want a "little" piece)
On Your Counter, it won't last the day...or
Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
Either way, save yourself a piece, because this is gonna go fast! :D
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
