Shortbread is a super versatile type of cookie: you can eat it with coffee or tea for breakfast, have a piece as a snack, eat one at lunch, or it can be a light dinner dessert.
What I also love about shortbread is that it can come in a million flavors, such as this orange one or, for a richer treat, you can try it dipped in chocolate!
Shortbread is also amazing because it is sooo simple to make. You only need the basics: flour, sugar, and butter. This one calls for a little bit of orange zest and a pinch of salt. Still, I think it’s astounding that only 5 ingredients are needed for these crispy buttery wonders. (more…)
