Recipe: Salted Maple Sugar Shortbread
Simple and delicious cookies that are perfect accompaniments to coffee or tea.
In an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, salt and vanilla extract together until well blended. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time until thoroughly incorporated. On floured surface, make a ball out of dough and roll it out into a log shape about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in wax paper and chill for 1 hour. Once chilled, slice into 1/4-inch thick coins. Place coins on parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle each with maple sugar and salt. Bake in 350-degree oven for 10 to 12 min. or until golden brown. Let cool completely before serving.
Great with tea or coffee.
