Cut out Shortbread Cookie Recipe

I bought a Wooden Rolling Pin from Valek in Poland. They're die cut with a design. Mine has Deer Heads on it. Here's the recipe for the cut out cookies.


Valek Rolling Pins


Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
2 Sheet Pans lined with Parchment Paper.
1 - 2" or 3" Round Fluted Cookie Cutter

2 C All Purpose Flour
3/4 tsp Salt
16 TBS = (2 Sticks) = (1 C) Unsalted Butter, room temperature.
1/2 C Confectioner's Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla or your favorite flavor of extract.


In a Small Bowl.
Flour
Salt
Whisk well.

In a Stand Mixer with a Paddle Attachment:
Butter
Beat 3 - 5 minutes.

Add:
Sugar
Beat 2 minutes, until creamy.

Add:
Extract
Mix just until combined.

Add, on Low Speed:
Flour Mixture
Beat just until incorporated, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.

Create 2 equal Discs.
Wrap tightly in Plastic Wrap.
Refrigerate 1 Hour.

Transfer dough to a flat, lightly floured surface.
Roll 1/4" thick with a regular Rolling Pin.
Roll the top with the patterned Valek Rolling Pin. Press lightly just to transfer the design.
Cut out Cookies with the Cookie Cutter.
Transfer Cookies to the Sheet Pans.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm the dough.

Bake 13 - 15 minutes, until Golden Brown.
Remove Pan to a Rack to Cool Completely.

Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
