I mentioned to the wifey that today was going to be shortbread day and I saw her eyes light up a bit. I had planned on coming home tonight and slapping some dough together and hoping for the best. Instead I come home to wonderful smells and shortbread with chocolate chips and toasted macadamia nuts!
Yes, it is ok to be jealous. Shortbread can be a great base for a numerous amount of cookie flavors. You can add a few tablespoons of cocoa powder and have a chocolate cookie base, or add nuts, or marshmallows, or cranberries!! Basically the flavor combinations are only limited to your imagination.
Where did your imagination take you for shortbread day?
