Panera Shortbread Cookies

So I have been addicted to Panera's SBC. They stopped making them for about 2 months and I thought they were gone for good. They did just get them back but I was so devastated when they stopped selling them I started trying to make my own.

I have tried every recipe I have found online for shortbread cookies and they just aren't the same.

Does anyone have any family shortbread recipes they would like to share?

Thanks!

Re: Panera Shortbread Cookies

THESE are amazing you can Omit the Lemon all together but I figure WHY its just so good

Meyer Lemon Vanilla Shortbread


6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons finely grated Meyer Lemon zest, divided use
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Meyer Lemon juice
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon coarse sugar, for sprinkling

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat butter and cream cheese until creamy - about 1 minute.
Beat in sugar, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, lemon extract, vanilla extract until well combined - about 1 minute.
Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in lemon juice and flour until just combined.
Chill cookie dough in refrigerator for 30-45 minutes or until cold and firm.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.

Roll out shorbread dough on a lightly floured surface to an 1/8-inch thickness using a rolling pin.
Try to roll the dough into a perfect rectangle. Cut off some of the raggedy edges, if necessary.
Cut dough into squares; transfer to cookie sheets. In a small bowl, rub together remaining 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
and 1 tablespoon coarse sugar, using fingertips. Sprinkle over tops of shortbread.

Bake 12-15 minutes or until very light golden brown. Transfer shortbread to wire racks to cool.

Makes 2 dozen shortbread

Re: Panera Shortbread Cookies

This one is very different. I like it. I don't like lemon, so I will omit, but I like the fact that it has different ingredients than I have been using.

Keep them coming!

Re: Panera Shortbread Cookies

I have a copycat Panera shortbread recipe somewhere, I'll find it for you. I started making these recipe because I was addicted to Panera's shortbread and couldn't rationalize paying for them all the time.
