As I said, it’s totally a copycat recipe of Lorna Doone Cookies. It is always easy and classic, maintaining some delicious ingredients like unsalted butter, white sugar, flour, vanilla extract, and a few others of shortbread.

Optionally, you can add some milk and sweet butter. It’s completely hearty and satisfying to make also. This recipe is so simple and irresistible to make and to have.


  • Unsalted butter – 10 tsp.

  • Confectioners’ sugar- 1/2 cup.

  • Vanilla extract – 1/2 tsp.

  • All-purpose flour – 1.5 cups.

  • Kosher salt – 1/2 tsp.

  • Tools
  • Spatula 

  • A large bowl

  • A Kitchen-aid mixture

how to make Lorna Doone Cookies

  • Beat the butter and salt: Bring a kitchen aid or a stand mixer with an attached paddle.  Pour 10 tsp of unsalted butter and add 1/2 tsp of salt. Beat the butter for a while.

  • Add sugar and vanilla extract: Now, add 1/2 cup of confectioners’ sugar. Beat them again until it gets a fluffy mixture. Pour 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. Mix up together and make a light and fluffy cream.

  •  Allow the flour directly: Turn off this kitchen aid for a while. Take another bowl and place 1.5 cups of flour. Now, again go for beating. While the beating is running, pour the flour slowly. Mix them all well on low speed.
  • Make a dough and shape: Now, transfer the mixture onto a board and knead them until it turns into a dough form.  Now, place it in a plastic wrapper and press them to give it a rectangular shape.
