brown sugar shortbread
What you will need: (recipe adapted from a 2008 cookbook from robin hood flour)
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla (you could add more)
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup corn starch
How to make:
Beat butter, brown sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add flour and cornstarch. Mix until dough forms.
Roll out dough and cut with desired cookie cutters (cookies do spread a bit, do go for anything too detailed) Bake is a 350 degree fahrenheit oven for 5-7 minutes dependent on your oven and cookies size, the smaller the cookie the less baking time. Cool on a wire rack and sprinkle with icing sugar as desired.
