Chalice House Shortbread

Chalice House Shortbread, a delightful snack with any tea, coffee or a big tall glass of milk. Although the actual recipe is a secret and I'd have to kill you if I told, I am happy to share this great basic shortbread recipe. The key to a firm light shortbread is a thorough mixing, by hand or with a large prong fork. Do not use an electric mixer. In addition, use extracts rather than flavorings; they have a richer flavor than imitation flavorings. ... Lori Lane Duke

Ingredients:
1/2 cup organic butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla, hazelnut, or your favorite extract
1 cup of organic unbleached flour
Vegetable cooking spray (Pam or Crisco)

Cream butter by hand until soft and fluffy, add powdered sugar, cream until light. Add extract and mix well. Add flour and mix, form into a ball and knead a few times (until dough is soft and pliable), then press mixture into a shortbread pan or 9-inch pan of any shape that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until slightly brown on edges. Remove from oven, cool 10 minutes, run edge of knife around pan, turn out wooden board and cut into slices while still warm.
