Watch the nuts closely to prevent burning. Cool nuts completely before chopping and adding to recipes. To speed up the cooling process after toasting nuts, immediately place hot toasted nuts onto a plate and place in the freezer for 5 to 8 minutes. Halfway through chilling time, stir the nuts to aid the cooling process.
How to Make Vanilla Sugar: Making your own vanilla sugar is quick and easy. Simply plan ahead 1 to 2 weeks before using. Place sugar into a medium bowl. With a sharp paring knife, on a small cutting board, carefully slice down the center of vanilla bean, almost to the end but leaving the end intact, to split open. With the back of the paring knife, scrape seeds into bowl with sugar. Using fingertips, work the vanilla seeds into the sugar until well incorporated.

I doubled the recipe. Beat the butter and sugar for about five minutes. I ground these in the food processor, which made a paste, so I added a few tablespoons of flour to separate it. Toasted the almonds before I ground them. And the orange zest came through loud and clear.
For the double recipe. I added more cinnamon, nutmeg and 1 tsp of salt. Wrapped two discs and chilled. Rolled out, cut in shaped and baked about 20 minutes. Hi there, Audrey! Thank you for writing with such a good question about my recipe for Sugar Plum shortbread Christmas Cookies. Yes, you may leave the pecans out. Instead, you could add some chopped dried cranberries for color and a flavor boost. I hope this information is helpful to you.
Thanks again for writing and happy holiday baking! Hi there, Trish! Thank you for writing with your question about my recipe for Sugar Plum Shortbread Christmas Cookies. Please know that I do not have a recipe for Sugar Plum Jam on the blog. The jam I recommend is made by Stonewall Kitchen. However, you can still make these cookies without it. Simply use your favorite holiday jam or red jam.
I like to blend both red raspberry seedless jam and strawberry jam for a simple but flavorful red jam. You could even add a tiny amount of spices to your jam to make it more Christmas jam-like. Think ground cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and cloves — even a bit of ground ginger, if you would like. There are many possibilities if you cannot find or do not order online from Stonewall Kitchen. Your cookies will turn out wonderfully! Thanks again for writing, Trish. I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question. Meanwhile, warmest wishes to you and yours for a meaningful holiday season that is merry and bright!
