Ted Lasso’s Secret Shortbread
Ted Lasso’s Shortbread
Next time you're coaching a sport you know very little about and need to win over your boss, these "biscuits" will do just the trick.
- 1 1/2 cups salted butter, cold (340g)
- 3 cups all-purpose flour (360g)
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar (150g)
- 3/4 tsp fine sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut butter into 1/2 inch pieces
Line a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with parchment paper
In an electric mixer, use the paddle attachment to first (slowly) mix together flour, sugar and salt
With mixer on low speed, add in butter piece by piece until dough just comes together (but still a tad crumbly)
Press dough into prepared pan and prick dough all over with a fork
Bake until golden, 30 to 35 minutes
Make sure the butter is cold! Cold butter melts in the oven (not in the mixing bowl) and makes air pockets so it’s light and crumbly.
This method is easy to remember. Just follow the rule of threes: (3 sticks of butter, 3 cups of flour, 3 quarter cups of sugar, and 3 quarter teaspoons of salt, baked for 30 minutes).
