This delicious Jewish Shortbread Cookie Pie is a perfect recipe for the holiday season! Soft nutty flavour with a sweet and cinnamon-y topping!
Today I have something really fun happening, I’ve come together with a group of food bloggers to each share a delicious holiday cookie recipe with you! So welcome to this very special Canadian Cookie Collaboration between the Canadian Food Creatives and the Canadian Christmas Cookie Exchange! I hope you can find some delicious recipes for your holiday season!
A classic recipe with a twist!
For this cookie exchange I decided to share my classic recipe for Jewish Shortbread, but with a twist! I made a cookie pie using the fantastic Nordic Ware Sweet Snowflakes Baking Pan. I try to make Jewish shortbread every year because it’s one of my favourite Christmas cookies…you could always find this classic crescent shaped cookie on Grandma’s cookie plate…I always loved that they were covered in cinnamon sugar!
Shortbread Cookie Pie
Instead of making individual crescent shaped cookies, I decided to make a cookie pie with Grandma’s recipe for Jewish Shortbread. To make this cookie pie, I just pressed the cookie dough into this special shallow pan, then baked it for about 45 minutes. I thought preparing it this way would be a nice twist on Grandma’s classic recipe, and it was!
Pretty and delicious!
The result is 8 large individual shortbread cookie slices that have a beautiful winter embossed pattern on the top. So pretty and so delicious. I love the soft nutty flavour of the ground pecans, with the sweetness of the cinnamon sugar mix on the top. A Classic Christmas cookie flavour! These cookies are rich and delicious, and you might want to cut them into smaller pieces…or not.
And how pretty does these slices look out of this pan? So lovely. I really liked using this pan for cookie baking and I plan on making a classic shortbread cookie pie with it.
- Nuts: I always use ground pecans for Jewish Shortbread, but you can also use ground walnuts or ground almonds.
- Pressing the dough into the pan. Make sure to firmly press the cookie dough into the pan, so you get really nice snowflake definition on the finished cookies.
- Let it cool! Make sure to let the cookie rest in the pan for at least 10 minutes before tuning it out onto a plate.
- Classic Cookie Option: If you wish just to make classic Jewish Shortbread, you can see how to make them here.
