DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until very smooth.
  • Sift the flour into the butter mixture and using a pastry mixer (or two forks), work the ingredients into a crumbly but very fine mixture.
  • Add the cayenne pepper.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to prefered thickness (I usually make mine kind of thin- about 1/8 inch).
  • Cut into desired shapes and place on a nonstick baking sheet.
  • Bake until golden brown.
  • The time will depend on the size and thickness of your shortbreads.
  • I usually bake mine for about 8 minutes, but if you are unsure, check after 5 minutes to make sure that you don't overbake them.
  • Cool on racks and enjoy!
