Shortbread Cookies

My personal food indulgences are not usually in the form of a dessert. I prefer to bake sweets and give them away.  Shortbread, however, make me weak in the knees.  Wait.  Correction.  A perfectly balanced shortbread makes me weak in the knees.

What makes a shortbread perfect?  It has just the right sweetness and a firm, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture.

Shortbread is not new to to me, or this little blog space.  I have made several different kinds.  For example, the Lavender Shortbread has become one of my go-to recipes. The Salted Caramel Shortbread was a popular one at my last school. The Orange-Rosemary Shortbread offered a lovely twist to a beloved biscuit.  I have enjoyed them all.  Even so, I have yet to make a recipe that made me stop in my tracks.  Until now.

These little rectangle beauties had me at hello. Perfect (in my world).

My absolute favorite cookie is shortbread cookies. I love sweets. So I am on the other end of the continuum as you are. Isn’t kind of cool how we come together and meet in the middle in regard to a particular sweet. That is why women should rule the world.
