Piped Shortbread

En las Daring Bakers pusieron un reto que consistía en hacer al menos una de las doce recetas de galletas que nos daban. Yo escogí esta porque eran los unicos ingredienes que tenia en casa, pero me he propuesto hacer algunas mas. Al final dejo unos cuantos links con recetas.

Piped Shortbread

225 gr mantequilla temperatura ambiente
175 gr harina
65 gr azucar glass
45 gr harina de maiz
10 ml esencia de vainilla
chocolate para decorar

Precalienta el horno a 150ºC
Mezcla la mantequilla, las harinas, el azucar y la vainilla. Bate unos 10 minutos.
Pon la masa en una manga pastelera y haz anillos en una bandeja de horno.
Hornealas unos 20 minutos. Una vez frias, bañalas con un poco de chocolate derretido.
Estan buenas y quedan muy bien con te o café, pero no son nada del otro mundo.

Como dije, aqui hay mas recetas de galletas, eso si, en inglés:
Double Chocolate Sables
Almond and Nutmeg Sables
Chocolate hazelnut crinkle cookies
German Lebkuchen
Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Piped Shortbread


1 cup (240 ml) (225 gm) (8 oz) softened butter
1¼ cups (175 gm) (6 oz) all-purpose (plain) flour
½ cup (65 gm) (2- 2/3 oz) confectioners' sugar
¼ cup (45 gm) (1½ oz) cornflour
2 teaspoons (10 ml) vanilla essence
Nuts, chocolate chips, maraschino cherries

1. Preheat the oven to moderate 300°F/ 150°C/gas mark 2
2. Combine butter, flours, vanilla and confectioner's sugar in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle beater. Mix on low speed until combined and then change to the whisk beater.
3. Beat for 10 minutes.
4. Pipe into rings.
5. Decorate with maraschino cherry pieces to look like little wreaths or leave plain.
6. Bake in preheated moderate oven for 15 to 18 minutes, or until bottoms are lightly browned.
7. Cool completely and drizzle with melted chocolate or icing (frosting) if you want to.
Important Tips I have learnt since I did the Food Talk Article
To pipe shortbread beat for 10 minutes NO MORE – if you overbeat the mixture it won’t hold when it cooks.
A cool oven is important. If your oven is too hot the butter and sugar boils and you end up with lacy cookies that fall apart as soon as you try to do anything with them.
Between piping put the bowl and the piping bag away from your oven so it doesn’t get hot but don’t put it in the refrigerator because it gets too cold and you can’t pipe it.

Blog-checking lines: Holiday season is the time for sharing and Peta of Peta Eats is sharing a dozen cookies, some classics and some of her own, from all over the world with us
