It feels like Christmas in July around my house:). I just loved making these these tender cookies. Thank you Kate @ Life, Tea, and Everything for being this month’s star baker and for sharing the recipe with us!
When Kate first shared the recipe for Shortbread cookies I knew exactly what I was going to do.
My beautiful daughter- in-law gave me a Pampered Chef Rolling Cookie Cutter for Christmas last year. Now was the perfect time to give it a try.
I’m happy to report, the cookies turned out so pretty:)
I wish I could say the cutter was easy and life changing for me, but it kind of was a bust. The dough would stick to the roller . When I would try to pull it out, the dough would squish. I think I need a little more practice to be sure:)
In the meantime, I took the scraps and made them into the crescents that the recipe recommended. Yum!
Seriously, this shortbread is so delicate and soft. Kate recommended adding flavors like lavender. I do think some flavoring would be a good idea as the cookie really is more about the tender texture than the flavor.
I added the nuts, because we are all nutty around my house. On the crescents, the chocolate also was a nice addition.
Have you ever had a TWIX candy bar? If you add a bit of caramel to this shortbread, it would be an EXACT copy cat recipe! De-licious!
Thank you once again Kate❤️ I will be making up a batch or two of these come Christmas. I bet peppermint candy would be a SWEET addition.
