Maple Breton Shortbread Cookies
Cook Time: -
- Using a whisk, cream the egg yolks and maple sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Then use a spatula to blend in the dry ingredients, which were sifted together beforehand, and the softened butter. Mix just until the texture is uniform.
- Remove the dough from the bowl and shape into rolls about ¾ inch (2 cm) in diameter using plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
- Preheat oven to 325° F (160° C).
- Remove the plastic wrap and cut the rolls into slices about ½ inch (1.5 cm) thick. Place the slices in a non-stick muffin pan and bake for 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Then cool completely on a wire rack.
