Lightly spiced shortbread cookies
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
In a large bowl or in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the butter, salt, icing sugar, sugar and vanilla until creamy.
In another bowl, combine the flour and the spices. Stir until incorporated. Then add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until the dough comes together.
Shape into a ball. Then divide the dough in two.
Roll out half of the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/3 of an inch thickness. To prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin, use plastic wrap to cover the dough before rolling.
Use a cookie cutter of your choice to shape the cookies.
You can reroll the cookie scraps.
Check the cookies at 15 minutes. They will take up to 18 minutes to cook depending on the size of the cookies and your oven. The bottoms of the cookies should be a light golden brown when they are ready.
Allow the cookies to cool. Once they've cooled, you can drizzle them with glaze if you like. Either way, they are going to taste great!
