Fudge-Striped Shortbread Cookies

I’m baaaaaaaack! [Please note that that should be read in a cheerful, playful voice, not in a scary Jack-Nicholson-from-The-Shining-voice.] I took a short, unplanned hiatus from blogging after the holidays. It was a combination of post-trip fatigue, family illness, major website dramaz (big sigh) and a newfound love of sleep. I didn’t blog, I didn’t…

Strawberry-Dusted Shortbread Stars

Are you familiar with freeze-dried fruit? I first fell in love with this genius product a few years ago, when Trader Joe’s started carrying a few varieties. (TJ’s is the source of most of my culinary obsessions, but to fall in love with a product they carry is to open yourself up to heartbreak when…

Caramel Shortbread Squares

I’m not much for storebought candy bars, but when I do have my choice of the prepackaged stuff, I usually go for a Twix. I like the shortbread/caramel/chocolate combination (and let’s petition for a dark chocolate-only policy, thankyouverymuch) and I like how light and crispy the bar is, as opposed to some of its heftier…

TWD: When Is A Scone Not A Scone?

Joining “Why Is A Raven Like A Writing Desk?” in the annals of head-scratching riddles, I present you with this week’s installment: “When Is A Scone Not A Scone?” How about…when you give the scone some friends? Like whipped cream, and macerated berries, and, yes, let’s throw in some pretty flowered plates. Because a good…

Salted Caramel Bars

Jason & I are not one of those “twinny” couples who seem to belong together at first glance–in fact I think our relationship sometimes mystifies people who don’t know us very well. Although I think we’re pretty well matched in the important areas, it’s true that we’re opposite in many ways. I love to run…

TWD: Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Shortbreads aren’t the kind of cookies I usually crave. I guess they have their place at the side of a coffee cup, but given the choice, I’ll always opt for good old chocolate chip cookies. So as I was dutifully making these cookies, I was already scheming about who I could gift them to–what unsuspecting…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Coconut Butter Thins

I will be the first to admit that these Coconut Butter Thins aren’t going to win first place in any beauty pageants. However, I think they have a good shot at winning Miss Congeniality (the award, not the Sandra Bullock movie). I made these after reading a lot of feedback from my fellow TWD’ers, which…
