Skor Bits Shortbread Slice Cookies

Contributed by: News Canada

“Shortbread gets an upgrade in this recipe – perfect for the holiday season,” says Anna Olson, celebrity chef and host of Food Network Canada's Bake with Anna Olson.


  • 1 cup (250 mL) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) Hershey's Skor bits


Using electric beaters (or a mixer), beat the butter for a minute, then add the icing sugar and beat until incorporated and fluffy, about 1 minute. Beat in the vanilla, then add the flour, cornstarch and salt and beat on low speed. Once incorporated, beat on medium-high speed (or more vigorously by hand) until the dough comes together. Add the Skor bits and stir in.

Shape the dough into 2 logs about 10 inches (25 cm) long (1 ½-inches/3.5 cm across) and wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours until firm.

Preheat the oven to 325(F (160 (C) and grease or line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

Unwrap and slice the dough into cookies ¼-inch (5 mm) thick and arrange them on the baking trays leaving at least ½-inch (1 cm) between them. Bake for about 16 minutes, until the cookie barely start to show a little colour at the edges. Cool the cookies completely on the baking tray before removing. The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.

Prep Time: 15 minutes Chill Time: 2 hours Bake Time: 16 minutes
