Last week we shared a recipe for the most delicious raspberry shortbread cookies with raspberry salt on The Glitter Guide! They were a huge hit in my house and I think a perfect sandwich cookie to give to your co-workers, friends or loved ones for Valentine’s Day!
Raspberry Shortbread Cookies with Raspberry Salt
3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (vanilla extract will work too)
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
With an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar and mix. Add in the vanilla bean paste. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Give it a little whisk then slowly add the flour mixture to the butter. Mix on low, just until combined.
Prepare two baking sheets and place to the side.
Place the dough on a floured surface and roll out to 1/4 inch thick.
Cut the dough into hearts by using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter.
Place the hearts on a cookie sheet and in the fridge for 10 minutes before baking.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 17 minutes, until edges are slightly browned. Cool before frosting.
