Shortbread Finger Biscuits

Print Email

1-1/3 cups (2 sticks and 6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus 2 tablespoons for pan
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup garbanzo bean flour

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add flours a little at a time on low speed, and mix until combined.

Turn out dough into the prepared pan. Using a sheet of plastic wrap, press until dough reaches edges and smooth evenly with a spatula before removing wrap. Using a ruler, measure and cut crosswise every 1 inch and lengthwise every 3 inches, forming 36 1-by-3-inch finger-size biscuits. Score tops with the tines of a fork.

Bake for about 80 minutes or until edges are pale to lightly golden. While still slightly warm, retrace biscuits with a sharp serrated knife. Let cool completely. Shortbread can be stored in a sealed container for up to a month. Yield: 36 biscuits.
