Viennese Shortbread Pastry Recipe
Here is a pastry with delicious “melt in the mouth” appeal. It is very soft and light when made and is piped through a 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) nozzle into a variety of shapes.That is mainly used for fancy shaped cookies which keep extremely well.
Ingredients: 1 cup (250 ml) unsalted butter, 1/2 cup sifted superfine sugar, 1 egg yolk, 2 drops vanilla extract, 2 cups all-purpose flour
Instructions: Lightly grease and flour a baking sheet. In a small mixing bowl, combine unsalted butter and sugar. Beat until white, light and fluffy. Stir in the egg yolk and the vanilla extract. Beat well.
Warm all-purpose flour slightly. Add half of the sifted flour, mix in well, using a wooden spoon, then add remaining flour, and mix until thoroughly combined. Place the mixture in a large pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) star nozzle. Pipe out in the desired shapes.
