My friend Lisa informed me there are only 3 ingredients in shortbread. I didn't know that, hadn't ever even thought about it. So that makes it super easy to whip up a batch of yummy cookies any ol' time the mood hits (3 or 4 times a day in my case).
I just happened to have a giant bar of dark chocolate that she made me buy. I have a long history of wanting to do everything just like Lisa...why stop now?
Here's her recipe:
2 sticks of butter creamed with 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt if your butter is unsalted. Then 2 cups of flour 1/4 cup at a time until it all clumps into a ball. roll in balls and smash or roll it out and cut it with a knife or cutters. 350 degrees for 10-14 minutes or so - will depend on how thick you made em.
And just for kicks, here's a pic of the two of us back when neither of us had encountered as many shortbread cookies.See, I was dressed in green just like her. That's me in the kicky beret.
