  • Summary

    "Real" shortbread is typically made with a little rice flour, which gives it that dry and delicate crunch. Instead of seeking rice flour, you can get an excellent result by using cornstarch to help achieve the classic texture. Sprinkle on a little green sanding sugar to celebrate "the day that's in it," as the Irish say.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup flour
    • 1/4 cup cornstarch
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • Pinch salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • Green sanding or decorating sugar
