ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 300°; lightly grease two 9-inch round cake pans; sprinkle each pan with 1 tablespoon of the maple sugar.
  • In a bowl, cream together the butter, salt, regular sugar, ½ cup maple sugar, maple extract, and vanilla; then beat in the flour.
  • Divide the dough in half and press it into the prepared pans, smoothing surface with your fingers.
  • Sprinkle each round with 1 tablespoon of the remaining maple sugar, pressing it in gently.
  • Prick the dough with a fork in an attractive pattern.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, until it is golden brown around the edges.
  • Remove it from the oven and loosen the edges with a heat-resistant plastic knife or table knife.
  • Wait 5 minutes, then carefully turn the shortbread out onto a clean work surface, all in one piece.
  • Using a pizza wheel or sharp knife, cut each round into 12 wedges (do this while the shortbread is still warm; if you wait until it is cool, it will not cut easily).
  • Transfer the wedges to a rack to cool.

    This is quick to put together, and is a lovely change from the traditional shortbread. Don't get me wrong....I *love* the old standby. :) I was making recipe #403830, and since I had the maple sugar figured I might as well give this version a try too. I'll be keeping this around. Thanks for posting.
