  • Summary

    Irish butter has a high butterfat content, making it especially flavorful. It's expensive to use for everyday baking but worth the splurge for this shortbread, where the ingredient shines.

    Ingredients

    • 9 ounces salted Irish butter, preferably Kerry Gold, or regular salted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for pan
    • 2 tablespoons nonfat milk
    • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
    • 2 tablespoons coarse sanding sugar or granulated sugar
