Lemon Shortbread Bites Recipe
2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cardamom
½ tsp lemon extract
1 packed tbsp lemon zest
¾ cup powdered sugar
8 oz. unsalted butter

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

3. Mix salt, cardamom, and flour in a bowl. Set aside.

4. Mix powdered sugar and zest.

5. With a handheld mixer or stand mixer, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Slowly add the sugar-lemon zest mixture until combined. Add lemon extract. Add all the flour on low speed until it comes together as a dough and then STOP.

6. Roll out to 1/4” thickness into your desired shape.

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-9 minutes, depending on size and your oven, until very light golden on the bottom.

NOTE: Baking a little longer will make them more crispy—you’ll find your sweet spot. They puff ever so slightly but don’t increase much in thickness. Let cool on cookie sheet for 3 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
