Shortbread Cookies

You can’t help but feel a sense of nostalgia with these classic shortbread cookies. Their delicately crisp texture and sweet buttery flavor make them completely irresistible.


24 cookies


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup Domino® Organic Raw Cane Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cake/pastry flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt


In mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar together for 2 minutes then beat in vanilla.

Sift flours and salt together and stir into creamed mixture, scraping sides of bowl, as necessary, just until combined.

Form the dough into 2 disks and wrap each in plastic or parchment. Chill dough 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 325 F.

Roll dough to 3/8” thickness. Cut with shape of choice or 2 1/2“round cookie cutter and place 1” apart on sheet pan. These cookies do not spread much.

Dock each cookie in 5 rows with a fork. Sprinkle tops with additional sugar.

Bake 25-30 minutes or just until golden brown on the bottoms.
