Recipe Ingredients for Stem Ginger Butter Shortbread

1/2 cup butter, unsalted
1 cup Smart Balance
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup Splenda
2 teaspoons sea salt (bigger crystal)
3 egg yolks
2 tablespoons vanilla
3 1/2 cup flour
312 grams crystallized ginger

Recipe Directions for Stem Ginger Butter Shortbread

  1. cream butter, sucre, and sel--medium, 2 minutes or so (less if cutting with splenda). add the yolks, 1 @ a time. add vanille, mix.

  2. add flour, bit by bit--mix on low until incorporated. remove from bowl, form logs with wax paper. chill (i freeze) the dough logs until firm.

  3. preheat oven to 325 F.

  4. use a knife with a very thin blade to slice 1/8-1/4 inch dough rounds; place the dough rounds on cookie sheets covered in parchment paper. leave 1/4-1/2 inch spaces between cookies. bake 15-20 minutes, and let cookies rest on the pan for a minute or two before removing the cookies to cooling racks.

  5. in re: color--i prefer the cookies to be a rich golden color on the bottom. you can tell that this is happening, because the edges of the cookies will be visibly darker than the center--just a bit; not actually brown. i feel the slight caramelization of the sugars helps to bring out the cookies' best flavor.
