Lavender Shortbread Cookies with Strawberry Dust

March 10, 2016

These were over-the-top delicious.  You wouldn’t (or I wouldn’t) think the non-chocolate cookies would steal the show, but these do, both for eating and looking.  Rich, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth shortbread spiked with aromatic lavender is finished off with a dusting of intensely tangy and fruity strawberry powder.  That all adds up to Lavender Shortbread Cookies with […]

Little Cardamom Cookies

February 5, 2016

I don’t know how these are so good.  The recipe only has 9 ingredients and these come together like any other rolled-out cookie, but they’re fantastic.  Little Cardamom Cookies are fragrant, exotic, buttery, and “get more of these in my mouth”-ish all at once.

Chocolate Toffee Bars

January 28, 2016

We took Chocolate Toffee Bars to the beach a couple weeks ago, as a substitute for our usual WT Bars.  Guess what.  They’re really good.  I don’t think I need to convince you.  If heath bar toffee bits, chocolate, and a shortbread-y crust appeal to you, you should already be sold on these treats.

Vanilla Bean Prosecco Jello Squares

January 21, 2016

  We hosted an open house a while back and it wasn’t super classy.  Our dining table was full of good food and the fridge was full of drinks and everything was casual and homey.  Alcoholic jello just seemed like the right thing to do, so I made a batch of Vanilla Bean Prosecco Jello […]
