Demerara Sugar Shortbread

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup packed Demerara-style sugar
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 tsp. baking powder

Bake in 325 degree oven until lightly browned and tester comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Using sharp knife, cut through score lines (leaving in pan). Let cool completely.

Does it taste much differnt from regular shortbread with the demerara sugar? I've seen that sugar in the store, but never tried any.
