When making shortbread cookies. Mix dough to a soft molding clay texture. Allow the dough to brighten to a light white color for best texture and mouth feel.
Garnish if you chose with chopped herbs and a sprinkle of granulated sugar.
For the best crumb texture in a shortbread cookie, bake until there is just a hint of golden hue across the top of cookie and remove from the oven promptly.
