Lemon Thyme Shortbread
Give your shortbread cookies a kick of herbal infusion.
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon zest, finely grated
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
2 cups all-purpose flour
Let's get Cooking...
Using an electric mixer or stand mixer, beat together butter, sugar, vanilla and salt until light and fluffy; stir in the lemon zest and thyme. Mix in flour just until combined.
Divide in half and shape into discs. Wrap each disc in plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm but not hard, about 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 300°F.
Roll out each disc, one at a time, on a floured board to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Cut out the cookies using a 2-inch cutter and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment. Repeat with second disc.
Bake until pale golden, about 20 minutes. Let cool on pans on rack for 10 minutes; transfer to racks and let cool completely.
