Shortbread cookies


Shortbread is a traditional Scottish butter cookie.Making it with butter gives it a richer, more flavorful finish.Vanilla bean paste is recommended because it mixes well with the dough and is very easy to use.


  • Unsalted butter 100g
  • Granulated sugar 45g
  • salt 1/3 teaspoon (1g)
  • vanilla bean paste 1/2 teaspoon
  • cake flour 180g


  1. Put the butter in a bowl and beat with a whisk until it becomes creamy.
  2. Add granulated sugar and salt and mix well until it becomes white and fluffy. Add vanilla bean paste and mix.
  3. Add the sifted flour and mix with a rubber spatula. When the mixture is no longer powdery, press it into the bowl to mix. At the end, gather the dough with your hands until it comes together into a ball.
  4. Shape the dough into a stick, wrap it in plastic wrap, shape it into a square 6cm wide and 1.3cm thick, and chill it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  5. Cut the dough into 2cm wide pieces.
  6. Make patterns with a fork and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake in an oven preheated to 160℃ for 25-30 minutes. Once baked, let it cool on a cooler and it’s done.
