Yield Makes 8 wedges

Number Of Ingredients 4

1 cup all-purpose flour
5/8 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, soften, plus more for pan
3/8 cup confectioners' sugar


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees, with rack in upper third. Sift flour and salt into a bowl; set aside. Put butter into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl. Gradually add sugar; beat until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture all at once; mix until just combined.
  • Using plastic wrap, press dough into an 8-inch shortbread mold coated with cooking spray. With plastic on dough, refrigerate 20 minutes. Prick all over with a wooden skewer. Bake 45 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes. Unmold; cut into wedges. Let cool completely.

This shortbread is the best I've ever had! It's so buttery and crumbly, and the flavor is just perfect. I will definitely be making this again and again.
