I really have a factor for shortbread cookie recently.

I’ve listed a quite few tips within the direction. the largest of them being the utilization of chilled butter. Most shortbread cookie recipes don’t need it however I often have problems with shortbread cookie and alternative styles of cookies spreading thus I’ll typically begin with cubed, chilled butter and this looks to be one amongst the sole things which will facilitate scale back spreading while not having to feature in an excessive amount of additional flour. simply make certain that you just combine the butter/powdered sugar mixture till there aren’t longer very little chunks of butter within the mixture and it becomes swish and slightly creamy (and don’t pack your flour once measuring!). Then additionally once shaping the logs variety of squeeze and compress the log as you form it thus you fill in any holes that will be within the center since the dough is pretty cold. If you continue to do happen to possess a number of very little holes after you slice them you’ll fill them with a bit dough.
