  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix the butter and sugar together for 2 minutes. Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour, mixing until just combined, approximately 30 seconds.
  3. Press the dough into a 9- inch springform pan.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes until the edges are lightly golden.
  5. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.Release the sides of the pan and using a very sharp knife, slice into wedges. Leave the shortbread in the pan until it’s completely cooled.
  6. Remove from the pan using a spatula.

Notes

Store at room temperature for up to 5 days for best freshness.

You can bake this in a 9- inch square pan as well, but for easiest removal, line the pan with aluminum foil before baking.
