Baking & Sweet Things
Melt the shortening in a saucepan or in the microwave.
Add sugar, stir well, and mix in the flour and spices.
Press into a well-greased shallow baking tray, sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired, and bake in a moderate oven for about 30 minutes.
Cut the shortbread into squares and cool in the tin.
Store in an airtight container with a vanilla bean.
More robust than a shortbread made with rolled pastry, this version is chunky and crumbly when bitten into. Try adding some chopped macadamias for a variation.
