Because in food I trust. In all forms and shapes. 

Apple powder shortbread

Apple powder shortbread

I love shortbread cookies. Light and crisp. Buttery. Crunchy. Although I do love baking plain vanilla shortbread, time-to-time I add other ingredients. This time, just a bit of an apple powder from Estonia that is made from dried biological apples grown in Estonia. It balances between sour and sweet. Perfect.

Preparation 10 min
Cooking 20 min
Total 30 min

Ingredients
200 g butter, room temperature
80 g light brown cane sugar
1 tsp. vanilla paste
20 g dried apple powder
100 g rice flour
200 g plain flour

Result
20 cookies

Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Line the tray with baking paper.

Beat the butter and the sugar together until smooth (around 3 minutes). Stir in the flour and other ingredients to get a smooth dough. Turn onto a work surface and gently roll out until dough is 5 mm thick.

Cut into desired shapes and place onto a baking tray. Bake in the oven for 11-15 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Take out and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Place on a wire rack and cool completely.
