Add mac nuts and beat on low until dough just comes together


Dump out onto flour dusted surface and shape into a flat disk


Cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes


Roll dough out into 1/2" thick and cut as desired - I stick with bars about 1"x2"


Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until edges begin to brown.


Transfer to cooling rack

Notes

I ended up buying a lot of almond flour over the internet - and have found that using it in these shortbread cookies takes away the need for almond extract and giving the shortbread a little more "bite"

A dash of local for every season
