Strawberry Shortbread Icicles

Yield: 3 dozen wedges
Prep 45 mins Bake 300°F 16 mins to 20 mins
Strawberry Shortbread Icicles
Ingredients
  • 1  cup  butter, softened
  • 1/2  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/4  cup  strawberry preserves
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground pink peppercorns
  • 2 2/3  cups  all-purpose flour
  •  Coarse decorating sugar (optional)
  • 1  recipe icing, (recipe below)
  •  Silver or white nonpareils (optional)
Directions

1. Heat oven to 300 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

2. In mixing bowl beat butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, preserves, vanilla, peppercorns, and 1/4 tsp. salt; beat until well-combined. Beat in as much flour as you can; stir in remaining by hand.

3. On lightly floured surface roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Use 6-to 7-inch round scallop-edge tart pan to cut rounds, re-rolling and cutting as needed (will have 3 to 4 rounds total). Using two spatulas, transfer 1 or 2 rounds to each prepared baking sheet, spacing 1 inch apart. Using a pizza cutter, randomly cut rounds in wedges; do not separate. Lightly brush with milk; sprinkle with coarse sugar.

4. Bake 16 to 20 minutes or until center are set and edges begin to brown. Remove baking sheets from oven. Recut wedges; let cool slightly on pan. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

5. Ice cooled shortbread; arrange nonpareils. Makes about 3 dozen wedges.
