    Vicki Kaye's Note:

    This is an easy delicious dessert. I'm addicted to a slice of it with my morning coffee--a bit crunchy reminiscent of biscotti, but a lot more flavor. From Cooking Light.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, cornstarch, and salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk.
    2. 2
      Place butter in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add oil; beat with a mixer at medium speed 3 minutes or until well blended. Gradually add sugar, beating well. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean, and add seeds to butter mixture; discard bean. Add flour mixture, beating at low speed just until blended.

      I did not get the texture I expected for shortbread. It was sort of oily at the top. I think the recipe needs less oil. The flavor was good though. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
