One classic biscuit I love to death but have never made at home is shortbread. I have no idea why it took until now to make it, but I'm so very glad I did.
This book had a dozen different shortbread recipes, but I decided to stick with the classic.
The shortness of this shortbread is far beyond that which I've ever tasted out of a packet. So yum.
I ended up giving my puppy the crumbs after I cut the slices, and now he is addicted to shortbread. Whenever one of us goes to grab a slice he runs over and sits there staring us down, hoping we'll fall for his big hazel eyes.
Mmm, all this talk of shortbread is making me hungry. I think I need some more. Meantime, here's a really simple recipe so you can make some for yourself.
