Some useful stuff
Shortbread biscuits can be baked in one solid cake, not pre-cutting the figures, and do it after. Only in this case, it is recommended to pierce the dough with a fork arbitrarily in several places so that carbon dioxide does not accumulate..
All products should be kneaded very quickly, and then the dough must be cooled. To bake the products in a temperature range of 170-190 ° C, with a higher one, the cookie will subsequently become too crumbly. You can come up with any shape and then fill with stuffing (both sweet and meat, at your discretion), for example, baskets.
Enjoy your meal!
