I’ve been trying to recreate a cookie that I am suddenly addicted to from our favorite local bakery- Prager Brothers. Started by two brothers the bakery originally sold only bread, but has expanded into pastries, cookies and sandwiches as well. These guys are true artisans and even mill their wheat right there in the shop. I wouldn’t buy my bread anywhere else.
Now about those cookies-they are a buttery shortbread with a hint of salt and I have to stop myself from eating more than one at a time. I’ve tried various recipes, but so far none have come close.
I’m posting this recipe that I found on line as it is super easy and is a good shortbread cookie, however I am still on the search for the Prager recipe. I did notice on their website that there’s whole wheat flour in their cookie. Next I may try this cookie from Alice Medrich, but without the nuts.
1 cup ( 8oz/240g) ) butter, room temperature
1/2 cup (2oz/60g)) powdered sugar, sifted
2 cups (10oz/300g)) all purpose flour
1 egg white beaten

Thanks for sharing this Janie! I love Prager Bros bread too. I get it at our local health food store, OB People’s and am hooked!

I remember taking baking classes from Alice M. years ago, so I know that these cookies will be delicious. Have to put them on my list of things to be made for Christmas

What’s not to love about a shortbread cookie like this? Even if it’s not exactly what you ate, I’ll bet they’re delicious. You couldn’t stop me from eating at least a half dozen.
