Coffee Shortbread Cookies

Rich, sweet shortbread has been a beloved traditional treat since the Middle Ages. It it deeply rooted in the dairy farming and butter making industry, and thus it is deeply rooted in the land. Serve Coffee Shortbread Cookies with your favorite after-dinner coffee, with fruit spread, nuts or with maple syrup drizzle.

14 ounce unsalted butter at room temperature
3 TBSP = 1 TSP very finely ground Dark Roast Coffee (we use Black Ice)
1 cup sugar
3½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ TSP salt

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix butter, coffee and sugar thoroughly. An electric mixer will give best results.

Combine flour and salt and add to the butter mixture. Mix until you obtain a dough. If using an electric mixer, a low speed is preferable.

Empty unto a plastic board or wrap and roll into a log. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.

Slice chilled dough into 1/2-inch medallions. You will obtain 12 to 16 shortbread cookies, depending on the length of your log. Arrange cookies on a an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake until you notice the edges turning brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

Indulge. We confess that we like to dunk ours in Maple syrup from the Vermont Maple Outlet.
