Pine Nut Rosemary Shortbread

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • Light pinch of Fine-Grain Sea Salt
  • 1 cup unsalted Butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • Zest of one Lemon
  • 2/3 cup Pine Nuts, toasted and loosely chopped
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons fresh Rosemary, finely chopped

Procedure:

  1. Combine flour and salt in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. In a separate large bowl or stand mixer, cream the butter until light and fluffy.  Add the sugar and lemon zest and mix again, then add the flour mixture, nuts, and rosemary and mix until the dough goes just past the crumbly stage and begins to clump together (you don't want to over mix, but under mixing will make the dough seem a bit dry, which can make it difficult to handle).
