Turmeric Hemp Seed Shortbreads

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2018 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com

Delicate, buttery, rich shortbread cookies made with spelt and hulled hemp seeds and infused with variety of warm spices. They are a great afternoon snack and particularly good when paired with a pot of freshly brewed tea. The cooled shortbread cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 1 month.

  • 150 g Unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp Raw sugar
  • 120 g Refined spelt flour
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 tsp Chilli flakes
  • 40 g Hulled hemp seeds
  1. In a medium bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  2. Sift the flour with the salt, spices and hulled hemp seeds. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter and beat until blended. Scrape the shortbread dough out onto a large sheet of plastic wrap or parchment paper and pat it into a log, about 1-inch in diameter. Wrap it up and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour or up to 2 days.
  3. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Slice the dough 5mm thick and arrange, at least 2cm apart, on two parchment-lined baking sheets.
  4. Bake in batches on middle rack until set but not brown, about 12 minutes. Slide the parchment onto a wire rack and let the shortbreads cool.

Angie, I would love to serve this for company...such pretty color from the turmeric, and I love the sweet and spicy combination especially. Another winner recipe!

Nammi 17/5/18 07:10

Interesting recipe, rarely make shortbreads. Dont know why I rarely make cookies now adays. By the way scotch bonnet peppers are the second most hottest chilli next to harbanero. Its a well loved chilli and used very often in savory dishes and curries here in Maldives.

I love shortbread! This is a much healthier version even if it still uses butter. I can always count on you to come up with healthy recipes for those otherwise not so healthy ones many of us still indulge in.

Kitchen Riffs 23/5/18 01:31

What a neat idea for a cookie! Love the color, and I'll bet the flavor is outstanding. Really creative -- thanks.

turmeric is all the rage right now, isn't it! i have a feeling you've been using it for years. :)

Nava K 24/5/18 08:38

Turmeric into shortbread is such a pleasure for tasting and for admiring. Love how this ingredient has made a difference. Which I usually add into curries and stir fries, and not into shortbread.
