BAKED Sunday Morning
Shortbread is such a classic cookie, but leave it to Matt and Renato to give the recipe a little twist. They suggest using superfine sugar or confectioners sugar. I went with the confectioners which combined with the 1/2 pound of butter (I made half of the recipe) and a mixture of all-purpose and rice flours gives the texture of this shortbread a fine buttery flakiness which just melts in your mouth. The contrast of the little bit of fleur de sel on top with the buttery flavor makes this an unforgettable cookie. And as always, these little shortbreads go perfectly with a cup of tea.
It's difficult to believe that this year is already drawing to an end and the rush of the holidays is almost over. It's been good to take time out to sip a little bit of tea and enjoy quiet moments of reflection and count my many blessings. I want to take this time to thank you for visiting and commenting and wish you much joy and happiness in the new year. xx
