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.

loving the natural and vibrant turmeric yellow in this bake!

Chitz 17/5/18 11:47

Vicki Bensinger 22/5/18 20:59

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.

tigerfish 23/5/18 01:50

Great idea to add turmeric! Who could resist those healthy delicious shortbreads...

Amy (Savory Moments) 23/5/18 13:23

Oh I love these Angie! Turmeric makes everything such a lovely color!

Evelyne CulturEatz 23/5/18 17:33

Talk about taking shortbread outside of the box, these look amazing Angie!

grace 24/5/18 01:06

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.

Big Rigs 'n Lil' Cookies 27/5/18 18:04

These sound so good! And, a cookie I wouldn't have to feel guilty about indulging in.

Runnin SriLankan 30/5/18 14:00

These look so good Angie! I love the color the turmeric adds - and the health benefits too!

Karen (Back Road Journal) 30/5/18 21:10

These like shortbreads have everything going for them. Buttery, crispy, pretty little bites of goodness.

Emma Ferguson 6/6/18 00:53

What beautiful biscuits and lovely flavours you have here Angie.

Sharon D 18/6/18 16:30

Oh my, this is beautiful. I can imagine the aroma and flavour.

Choclette Blogger 27/6/18 18:27

These are another very clever idea. My trouble is I'd be too greedy to be able to store them for a whole week. I had a whole heap of turmeric in my smoothie this morning, so at least I'm getting something healthy ;)
