Make the Shortbread

STEP ONE

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a 10” round pan with greased parchment paper and set aside.

STEP TWO

Mix flour and sugar together in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed just until crumbly in texture.

STEP THREE

Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface and gently press into a ball. Place into prepared 10” pan, using fingers to press the dough flat into the pan meeting all edges.

STEP FOUR

Using the tines of a fork, poke holes all over the dough. Score lines with a knife or bench scraper. Sprinkle the surface with sugar.

STEP FIVE

Bake at 325°F for 20-30 minutes.

STEP SIX

Let the shortbread cool completely before breaking along scored lines.
