This time it's bars & cookies!

I posted w-a-y back in February about some delicious treats for my sweeties; is the recipe. I shaped mine into hearts, but the recipe is a slice & bake one.

Chai Shortbread

1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground cardamom
1/8 tsp cinnamon
dash of ground cloves
dash of freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup powered sugar
10 TBsp butter, softened
1 TSP ice water

Spoon flour into measuring cups and combine with next 5 ingrediants (through pepper), stirring well with a whisk. In separate bowl, beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating at low speed until just combined (will appear crumbly). Sprinkle dough with ice water; toss w/a fork. Divide dough in half; shape into two 6-inch logs and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill 1 hour.

Oven at 375. Unwrap dough and slice each log into 18 slices. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets and bake for 10 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes. Yields about 3 dozen.
