Posted in Recipes at 9:00 am

Back to the kitchen for another new recipe. I have set a goal to try one new recipe a week for the year. Maybe then I can start getting through that backlog of magazine and internet clippings. Yesterday, we made Spiced Shortbread (another recipe from Penzeys.com – on the whole, we have been very pleased with every recipe we have tried off their website or catalog – yes, I do have a lot of Penzeys spices in my kitchen). These were yummy. Might make some more this weekend. Bonus – this is an easy recipe that is made from staples. Love it!


Spiced Shortbread

1 cup butter, room temperature

1/2 cup white sugar

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. ground cardamom

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. almond extract

3 Tbsp. milk

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add flour, cardamom, vanilla, and almond. Mix well. Add milk. Mix. Roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into bars. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake 30 minutes (until edges are golden and middle is firm).

  1. Oh, I can’t wait to try to make these (read: I can’t wait until D tries to make these)! They sound like they would be perfect with some tea. Don’t you just love Penzey’s? Next time we spend more than a day in WI, I will stop by there and pick stuff up for all of us.

    Glad, for purely selfish reasons, to see you blogging, lady. More yumminess (food and other) please!
