Shortbread Sugar Cookies

Shortbread Sugar Cookies



Mouthwatering, buttery and perfectly baked cookies are always a treat for any occasion.  With just a few ingredients these shortbread sugar cookies made from a simple pâte sablée will come together in no time at all.  Rolled in sanding sugar and baked to perfection in the wood-fired oven they will be amazing when dipped in a cold, tall glass of milk, or elegantly served with hot tea or freshly brewed coffee.  Let's get started!




    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F - 200°C 
    2. Once the shortbread pastry dough has been made, roll it into a long cylinder.
    3. Wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator to cool for at least one hour.  This dough can also be frozen.
    4. When the dough has cooled roll it in sanding sugar.
    5. Slice the dough into rounds and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
    6. Bake the cookies for 10-15, until lightly golden brown.
    7. Place the cookies on a cooling rack.  
    8. When cooled, the cookies are ready to be served.  Enjoy! 

      Buon Appetito!
