Snickerdoodle Shortbread

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium bowl combine flour, 3 Tbsp. of the sugar, vanilla bean seeds, and 1/4 tsp. of the cinnamon. Add butter. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling together. Form the mixture into a ball and knead until smooth.
  2. In a small bowl combine remaining 3 Tbsp. sugar and the remaining 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. On an ungreased cookie sheet pat or roll the dough into an 8-inch circle. If desired, make a scalloped edge. Brush lightly with milk. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon-sugar. Cut into 16 wedges (do not separate wedges).**
  3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or just until bottom starts to brown and center is set. While warm, cut circle into wedges again. Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes. Remove; cool on wire rack.

From the Test Kitchen

*TIP

If using vanilla extract, drizzle over shortbread dough just before kneading.

**TIP

To make different shortbread shapes, on a lightly floured surface roll or pat dough until 1/2 inch thick. Use cookie cutters or a knife to cut desired shapes. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.

Butter-Pecan Shortbread

Prepare as directed, except substitute packed brown sugar for the granulated sugar. After cutting in butter, stir in 2 Tbsp. finely chopped pecans. Press a pecan half into each wedge before baking.
