From Bangor Trust Brewing Baker/Kitchen Manager Brandy Baker


1 ½ cups Butter (softened)
2 cups Turbinado Sugar
2 Large Eggs, plus 2 Yolks
5 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Almond Extract
4 ½ cups King Arthur Sir Galahad Flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Powder

Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each. Add extracts.

In a separate bowl, sift flour, salt, and baking powder. Slowly add to butter mixture. Wrap in place and let rest overnight.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll out dough to ¼ to ½ inch thickness. Cut out two cookies for each tart, one of which will have a smaller cut out in the middle to let the Raspberry Filling show through. Bake approximately 8 - 10 minutes. Let cool.
