Rich shortbread is easy to prepare and keeps for several days in an airtight container. Softened butter should be pliable but not easily spreadable. Because this mixture is already dark, it’s hard to tell when the shortbread browns. Check your oven temperature using an oven thermometer, and bake just until the shortbread is set.
