Sourdough Shortbread Cookies
  • Unsalted butter - Be sure to use unsalted so you can better control the saltiness flavor. I also prefer to use a good grass fed butter (usually homemade if we have enough milk from our cow). Butter is the star ingredient of shortbread, so don’t skimp on quality!
  • Granulated sugar
  • Vanilla extract - I like to use my homemade vanilla. Learn how to make it here.
  • Sourdough discard
  • Salt - sea salt is best!
  • All purpose flour
  • Semi-sweet chocolate (optional) - You could also use dark or milk chocolate, pending your taste preference.
