How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, extending over edges. Set aside.

    Stir together all shortbread ingredients except flour in bowl. Add flour, beating on low speed until combined.

    Press dough evenly into prepared pan. Bake 17-19 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 2 minutes in pan.

  4. STEP 4

    Lift bars from pan, using foil. Cut bars into 9 equal squares. Cut each square in half diagonally, forming triangles. Cool completely.
