Sugar and Spice Shortbread
« on: January 26, 2013, 11:03:04 pm »
Makes 20 (depending on size of your cutters)

Quick, simple, egg free Ė and they keep in the cookie jar for up to a week! Go crazy with your favourite cookie cutters! These are so simple and so delicious, full of sugar and spice and all things nice. These is my go-to cookie recipe so I was thrilled to be able to convert it to the Thermomix.

Ingredients

125g unsalted  butter, softened
1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup (150g) plain flour
1/3 cup (50g) rice flour (mill your own in the thermie)
Ĺ teaspoon ground cinnamon
ľ teaspoon mixed spice

How to

1. Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
2. Put all the ingredients into the TM bowl and blitz for 10 seconds on speed 10.
3. Set the dial to  *: and knead on  :: for 20 seconds.
4.Tip the mixture onto a sheet of baking paper. Donít worry if itís a bit crumbly, just bring it together into a ball with  lightly floured hands. If the weather is really warm, you can wrap the dough in plastic wrap and pop it into the fridge for about 30 minutes so that itís easier to work with.
5. Roll dough between two sheets of baking paper until about 5mm thick. Cut out biscuits with your preferred cutter. (The bigger the cutter, the less biscuits you will have!)
6. Place cookies on prepared trays. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden. Keep an eye on the biscuits while baking, because they brown really quickly.
7. Cool on trays. Serve dusted with icing sugar, if you like.


Preparation Time: 3 minutes  Cooking time: 15-20 minutes

Judy, you're not the first person to ask! I think you have found a niche in the cookie cutter market, a Tassie for every Australia cookie cutter! I made these for my students for Australia day along with some koalas, crocs and roos! I have a thing about cookie cutters and I am always looking for an excuse to use them!

Well I know Tasmanians do get upset when they are left off the map of Australia Sam  ;D  It would be hard to bake a little Tassie though, would need careful watching.  Lucky students you have.

We love shortbread and these sound lovely.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
