Panko Cookies


 Panko Cookies from Noble Pig 4
I remember when I used to use just regular bread crumbs, until panko came into my life. I absolutely love the texture it gives fried foods and the flakes tend to stay crispier longer than standard breadcrumbs. 

Panko is made from crustless bread, unlike regular breadcrumbs. As a result, they absorb less grease and give a better crunch to food in general. It's the reason I had to make these cookies. I knew they would have the perfect crunchy texture...and they did. You will not be disappointed.

Panko Cookies Noble Pig Beach House Baking

Panko Cookies

Recipe from: Beach House Baking, republished with permission. | Serves: 10

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 cups of sifted powdered sugar for coating

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie tray with aluminum foil, parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the flour and panko, on low speed until blended.
  • Scoop the dough onto the prepared tray (use a one ounce ice cream scoop). Press down slightly on the dough to flatten it to about 1/2 inch tall. Bake for 7 minutes, rotate, and then bake 7 to 8 minutes more or until bottoms of cookies are slightly browned.
  • Cool 10 minutes on baking sheet. Roll warm cookies in the powdered sugar until evenly coated. Place on a wire rack to cool completely before tossing again in the powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

If I were you, I'd make a double batch! These cookies melt in your mouth and hold up well over several days.

    Minus pecans and add the panko, this recipe is exactly the Russian Tea Cake / Mexican Wedding Cakes recipe in the 1950’s Betty Crocker Cookbook. My absolute favorite! I can mix these up by heart (and have several times late at night when my sweet tooth takes over).
    I have panko in my pantry and will definitely be making these soon.. would never have thought to add panko. These are a shortbread and just melt in your mouth! Than you!
