Cinnamon flavoured Shortbread Cookies

  • All purpose flour – 3 cup
  • Unsalted butter – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Salt – pinch
  • Vanilla essence – 1 Tea spoon
  • Cinnamon – 1 Tea spoon
  • Grind sugar with cinnamon and keep it aside.
  • In a large bowl mix ground sugar, butter, salt and vanilla essence.
  • Add all purpose flour to this mixture.
  • By using our hands mix well and make the dough into disc shape.
  • Don’t work too hard with the dough.
  • Wrap the dough with a plastic cover and keep it in refrigerator for about an hour.
  • Then by using a roller roll out the dough into 1/4 inch thick.
  • Cut into small rounds with a cookie cutter and place them in a non stick backing dish.
  • Again refrigerate them for about 15 mins to retain their shapes while baking.
  • Pre-heat oven at 325 degree F and bake in the middle rack until the cookies are golden brown.
