Thyme, Cardamom & Orange Shortbread Cookies

The crisp yet buttery texture of traditional shortbread is complemented by the marriage of peppery thyme, warm cardamom and bright, zesty citrus. Better make a double batch!

Ingredients

½ cup unsalted butter, softened

¼ cup organic cane sugar

1 tablespoon fresh orange juice

2 teaspoons organic dried thyme

½ teaspoon cardamom seeds, crushed

1 ¼ cups all-purpose organic flour

Directions

Preheat oven to 350' F

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the orange juice, thyme and cardamom; mix well. Gradually add the flour, mixing to incorporate and until a smooth ball forms. Divide dough in half and roll out to ¼ inch. Cut into rounds with a cookie cutter or the rim of a clean glass. Bake about 12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Let cool completely before serving. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
