Year of the Tiger Shortbread

 

Tết 2022 marks the Year of the Tiger, which is especially poignant for me because that is my animal sign.   People born in a year of the tiger are known to be brave, competitive, unpredictable, charming and well-liked by others.  However, sometimes they are likely to be impetuous, irritable and overindulgent. I'll leave it to those who know me well to decide if they recognize these characteristics in me.

To celebrate the Lunar New Year I made some these Tiger Shortbread which I'll hand out to family and friends.  The recipe I used is a clotted cream shortbread which I especially love because it does a fantastic job of keeping the intricate designs of your design intact.  I saved two tubs of Rodda's clotted cream that I got in London specifically for this purpose.  Fresh clotted cream is difficult to find in the States (which is why I bring it back from England) so you can just substitute butter in its place. The tiger cookie cutter I purchased from Amazon.  

Wishing you all a healthy, safe and prosperous Year of the Tiger!

Clotted Cream Shortbread
 
100 grams unsalted butter, at room temperature
100 grams fresh clotted cream (you can use unsalted butter as a substitute)
100 grams granulated sugar
300 grams all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter, clotted cream and sugar with a hand mixer until smooth and pale. Then add the flour and continue to mix until it has the appearance of rubble.

Next, using your hands, form the mixture into a dough. Then flour a clean surface and rolling pin, and roll the dough out to an 1/4" thickness.  
 
Using a cutter, cut out the shortbread biscuits and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. If you have any leftover, you can reform the dough and roll out again.

Bake the shortbread in the oven for around 25 minutes until they are set and lightly colored.
