1
In a large bowl, combine all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, and kosher salt. Make sure to mix well ensuring that all ingredients are evenly distributed.
2
Add in the softened unsalted butter to the flour mixture. Knead the dough by hand until it comes together and becomes smooth.
3
Pressure the dough into a square baking pan lined with parchment paper and smooth out the surface.
4
Cover the dough with cling film and place in the fridge for 20 minutes to allow it to harden up.
5
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit, with the rack in the upper third.
6
Remove the cling film from dough and lightly mark the dough into your desired shapes using a knife. Don’t cut through completely.
7
Using a fork, lightly prick all over the dough at 1/4 inch intervals.
8
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and firm in the center, around 50 minutes.
9
Remove baking pan and place onto a cooling rack. While still warm, follow the previously made marks and cut through completely.
10
Let the shortbreads cool completely in the pan.
11
Once cooled, remove the shortbreads using parchment paper as handles and transfer onto a serving dish or storage container.
