I needed to do some baking just for me. I wanted to play with a new flavor paste I got from Pastry Portal and I just wasn’t in the mood for cake of any kind. I’m up to my eyeballs in cake all the time… Girl needs a break when cake invades her dreams.
I was looking for something light, crisp, sweet, but not overly complicated. I make some killer complicated cookies with a scrumptious array of mix-ins. But simple sounded good.
I found a great recipe from Ina Garten for shortbread cookies and figured I would mess with the flavoring and even combine two flavors. So I split the dough and this is what I came up with…
Oh the deliciousness!!! I dipped them in a bit of 61% Maranta Dark Chocolate but would be fabuloso in Nevado White Chocolate as well. I just can’t resist chocolate and it adds a little extra dimesion to the flavors. Dip ’em in a hot cup of afternoon or night time tea… oooooohhhhh HEAVEN!
