Citrus Shortbread Cookies Recipe | Allrecipes image

This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law, one of the best cooks I know...and given that we're from south Louisiana, that's saying something. With the chopped up dried cranberries, these are as pretty as they are tasty.

Provided by Donna

Categories     Cranberry Cookies

Total Time 4 hours 35 minutes

Prep Time 25 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes

Yield 2 dozen

Number Of Ingredients 9

2 cups all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon baking powder
⅛ teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
¾ cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon grated orange zest, or more to taste
2 cups sweetened dried cranberries, chopped

Steps:

  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; set aside. Beat the butter and confectioners' sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and almond extracts and orange zest. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the cranberries; mixing just enough to evenly combine.
  • Divide the dough into 2 equal portions, then roll into logs about 7 inches long. Wrap each log in wax paper or plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Remove wax paper, and cut the cookie dough into 1/2-inch slices. Arrange the slices on a baking sheet about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until firm but not browned, about 10 minutes.

SHORTBREAD, 10 WAYS RECIPE - NYT COOKING



Shortbread, 10 Ways Recipe - NYT Cooking image

Shortbread is not only one of the easiest desserts you can possibly make, it’s also one of the most adaptable. As long as you keep the butter-to-flour ratio constant (1 stick butter to 1 cup flour), everything else is negotiable. You can reduce or increase the sugar and salt, or mix in any type of flavoring from citrus zest to vanilla to herbs and spices. You can even alter the type of flour, swapping in some rice flour for all-purpose flour for increased crunch, or cornmeal for a nubby texture. Just be cautious about adding liquid to the dough; any more than one tablespoon could interfere with the texture. Here we give a master recipe and nine variations to play around with.

Provided by Melissa Clark

Total Time 1 hours

Yield 24 servings

Number Of Ingredients 4

2 cups/250 grams all-purpose flour
2/3 cup/150 grams granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon fine salt
2 sticks/1 cup/226 grams cold unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch chunks

Steps:

  • Heat oven to 325 degrees. Pulse together flour, sugar and salt in a food processor. Add butter and pulse to fine crumbs. Pulse a few more times until some of the crumbs start to come together, but don’t overprocess; the dough should be somewhat crumbly. (You can also mix the dough in a bowl using two knives or a pastry cutter.)
  • Press dough into an even layer in an ungreased 8- or 9-inch-square baking pan, or a 9-inch pie pan. Prick dough all over with a fork. Bake until golden brown, about 35 to 40 minutes for the 9-inch square or pie pan, 45 to 50 minutes for the 8-inch. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Cut into squares, bars or wedges while still warm.

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas mark 4. In a food processor, whizz together the flour, caster sugar and 115g butter until it resembles breadcrumbs.

    Tip into an 18cm square tin, press in firmly and prick all over with a fork. Chill for 20 minutes, then bake for 30 minutes, until just turning golden. Cool in the tin.

    In a pan, heat the condensed milk, brown sugar, syrup and remaining 100g butter. Bring to the boil, stirring all the time. Boil, still stirring, for 5-8 minutes until thickened. Pour the caramel on to the shortbread, then leave to cool for 30 minutes.

    Melt the milk and white chocolate separately in bowls over pans of simmering water, making sure the water doesn't touch the pan. Pour the milk chocolate over the caramel, then pour the white chocolate on top. Swirl it together with a skewer to create a marbled effect. Chill for 2 hours until set, then remove from the tin and cut into squares.

THE ULTIMATE MILLIONAIRE'S SHORTBREAD - THE HAPPY FOODIE
The Ultimate Millionaire's Shortbread from James Morton's How Baking Works cookbook. This delicious recipe for a classic caramel shortcake is the best James has ever tasted.
From thehappyfoodie.co.uk
  • Watch James make his caramel sauce in our YouTube tutorial video:

    1. Preheat your oven to 160°C/140°C fan/Gas 3. Line an 8-inch square brownie tin with baking paper and grease the sides.

    2. To make the shortbread, use a wooden spoon to combine the butter with the sugar in a large bowl until it forms a paste. Add the flour and gently mix it all together. Use your hands to work the mix until it mops up all the crumbs – you don’t need to add any extra liquid.

    3. Press this out flat with your hands so that it fills your lined tin, then bake for 10–15 minutes or until it is just blushing golden brown at the edges. Leave to cool in the tin.

    4. Whilst it’s baking, start the caramel. Weigh all the ingredients into a saucepan and place on a medium-high heat, stirring gently. Watch it closely as you stir – you should start to see little slivers of brown where it has stuck to the bottom of the pan. If you see these bits, stir them in vigorously and turn the heat down to low-medium. Simmer gently until it is a colour that you like – I go for a deep, golden brown.

    5. When ready, pour your dark caramel onto your biscuit base and spread it over the top with a knife. To even out the surface, pick up your tin and drop it onto the countertop with a bang. Leave this to cool for at least an hour (or overnight) before adding the chocolate topping, or the heat will ruin your careful chocolate work.

    6. Break about three-quarters of the chocolate into a microwaveable bowl and chop the rest very finely.  Zap your chunks in a microwave on full power for 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between (or melt over a bowl of simmering water). Once melted, add your finely chopped chocolate and stir until they are combined.

    7. Pour it onto your cooled caramel surface and spread gently with a knife. Again, to even the surface, pick it up and drop it onto your countertop, or give it a shake in the tin. If you like, you can lay a sheet of cling film on top of your chocolate for an extra shiny surface, but pull it tight to get rid of the wrinkles. Leave it to set for another hour (NEVER in the fridge), before slicing into squares. Heat your knife with water from the kettle to make slicing easier.
