“Melt-in-your-mouth shortbread.”

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar for decoration

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat butter with 1/2 cup sugar and almond extract until light and fluffy. With a wooden spoon, stir in flour until smooth and well combined. Divide dough into 2 parts. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  3. On lightly sugared surface, roll out dough, one part at a time, about 1/2-inch thick. Cut out cookies with a 1 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet 1 inch apart. Make an indentation in the center of each cookie with the end of a wooden spoon.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are light golden brown around the edges, 25 to 30 minutes. While still warm, roll in sugar. Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an air-tight container.
