I love Roasted Garlic Butter.... So this seems like a natural pairing for a butter rich shortbread. Add to that, some Asiago d'allevo (aged Asiago), and you are good to go.
This year, I decided a little Thyme and Black Pepper would kick it up a notch. I was VERY pleased with the results.
Roasted Garlic, Thyme & Asiago Shortbread
8 oz Unsalted Butter (note- not Cultured)
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 couple Grinds of Black Pepper
2 tsp dried Thyme
5 oz Asiago d'allevo Cheese, finely grated
12 oz AP Flour
Cut the tops off the garlic.
Roll out on a lightly floured surface.
