Baking My Way: Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookie Dough

This recipe on it's own isn't thrilling but I love that from this recipe that give you three other wonderfully tasty recipes to use. I love all the options! Stay toned for all of those (listed below!)

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 1/2 cups All Purpose or Unbleached Flour

In large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar and butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; blend well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Stir in flour until well blended. Divide dough into thirds; cover with plastic wrap.

Use as directed to make Cherry Chocolate Brown Sugar Shortbread Bars, Jam-Filled Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies or Maple Nut Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies.

(I ended up putting some left over icing on these cookies and it made them a good 80% better then plan. Just a tip!)

  2. I love plain shortbread...the rich buttery flavour just says "Christmas" ...Thanks for sharing!
