Scale

Ingredients

Cardamom Shortbread Cookies:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (113 g)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (60 g)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (212 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cardamom

Rose Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar (120 g)
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon rose extract 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • Pinch of salt
  • Edible rose petals, for sprinkling (optional)

Instructions

  1. Make the cardamom shortbread cookies: In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or a large bowl with a handheld mixer), cream together the softened butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract and milk and mix until combined. Add in the all-purpose flour, salt, and ground cardamom and mix until just combined.
  2. Shape the dough into a disk and refrigerate until firm (at least 30 minutes).
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C). Line a sheet tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  4. Roll the chilled dough between two sheets of parchment paper to a 1/2-inch thickness. Cut out the cookies using your desired cutter, then transfer them to the prepared baking sheet. You can also re-roll the dough several times to get as many cookies as possible.
  5. Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. Let the cookies cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Prepare the rose glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, rose extract, vanilla extract, and salt.
  7. Once the cookies have cooled, dip half of each one in the rose glaze. Sprinkle rose petals on top if desired, then let the glaze harden before serving.


Notes

  • Stored in an airtight container, these shortbread cookies will stay fresh for up to one week.
  • The number of cookies this recipe yields will depend on the size of your cookie cutter.
