Wordless Wedensday (Almost)


Freshly baked shortbread, from Ina’s recipe; I recently purchased her new book “Barefoot Contessa; Back to Basics”. Great cookbook. And Although I baked it in a springform pan (instead of cutting with cookie cutter) and didn’t dip it in chocolate, it was still wonderful! Personally I think the chocolate in her recipe is a little much…like guilding the lily, you know? I mean…shortbread is already so rich and delicious on it’s own.

These came out delicious and would taste awesome crumbled over some vanilla ice cream.
