Polka Dot Shortbread with Pink Lemonade~
They just look like summer to me together..
The book is adorable..a beautifil gift from Mary..Screen Doors and Sweet Tea..
The Polka Dot Shortbreads caught my eye in an instant!
I had just made lemon curd..and had the jam..we always love shortbreads..
It was a must make cookie.
Again I halved the recipe..used a smaller tart pan.. worked very well..
I just can't bake full quantities w/ just the 2 of us and we are careful.
Worth every little polka dot calorie~I gardened for 5 hours ..so even:)
Polka Dot Shortbread~ Martha Foose.
Screen Doors And Sweet Tea
1 ¾ cups unbleached all purpose flour
¼ cup rice flour
½ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter cold cut into small pieces
½ tsp vanilla
2 tbsps seedless raspberry jam
2 tbsps lemon curd
Preheat oven to 325F
In a food processor fitted with the metal blade pulse flours sugar and salt add the butter and vanilla and pulse to form a ball.
Press the dough into an 8 inch pan w/ removeable bottom.
Score the dough to make 16 wedges.
Bake 10 mins
Meanwhile fill baggies w/ the jam and curd..
Use a dowel(I used the end of a chopstick) and make divots.1/ way through the dough ..
Fill each divot w/ a bit of raspberry and curd..
Return to oven and bake ap 10 mins..Mine took a bit longer..
Don’t get them too dark..just edges.. golden..
Cool in pan on rack.
Remove and cut..
I used a pastry tip..the recipe says just snip the baggie..
They are just darling~
