Cost per recipe $0.21 view details
  • 150gr Unsalted butter, in room temperature
  • 70gr Brown sugar (some people say, this is irreplaceable with white sugar)
  • 200gr Flour
  • 1 tbsp Milk powder
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla powder/extract


  1. Cream butter, vanilla powder/extract and sugar by using electric mixer.
  2. Add 150gr of flour and milk powder to the mixture. Mix well by using rubber spatula.
  3. Sprinkle kneading board with the remaining flour. Knead the dough for 5 minutes with the remaining flour until it forms soft dough. Make a ball from the dough and cover it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour or overnight.
  4. Roll the dough to 1/2 inch thickness and cut them into 3x1 inch strips. Prick the cut shortbread dough with fork and place them on a pan already lined with ungreased parchment paper.
  5. Sprinkle the shortbread with a little bit of brown sugar before baking (optional).
  6. Bake the shortbread in a preheated oven (at 150 degree Celcius) for 20-25 minutes.
