I made these a year ago and LOVED them, but couldn't remember how I made them. This is the exact recipe, and indeed they look / taste just like Panera's shortbread cookies. Make sure you DO NOT substitute margarine for butter, otherwise they will taste flour-y and bland. Also don't roll the dough too thin!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients; use hands to knead until ingredients are blended. Press into ungreased pans (or chill and roll out to about 1/2-inch on a floured board and cut into shapes).
  2. Before cooking, mark rectangle cookie lines with knife.(I even made diamonds by cutting them on a diagonal to make them look like Panera's!) Bake at 325° for about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
