English Lemon Shortbread Strips
Land O Lakes
( I halved this recipe and made them in a 9 inch square glass baking pan. Baking time was the same.)
Makes 5 Dozen
2 cups Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine all shortbread ingredients except flour in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Press dough evenly into lightly greased 15x10x1 jelly-roll pan. Bake 30-35 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely.
Combine all glaze ingredients in small bowl with wire whisk until smooth.
Spread thin layer of glaze over cooled shortbread; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon lemon zest, if desired. Let stand 30 minutes to set. Cut into 2 1/2x1-inch strips.
