lemony-sunshiney shortbread


Biting into one of these puppies is just like harnessing some sunshine, and I betcha can't eat just one (which is why I'm sending most of them with Stephen to work tomorrow).

Here's the recipe - I also added a hint of vanilla and an extra splash of lemon juice to the dough. I got the idea to search for a lemon shortbread recipe as I was eating Lemonist, my favorite storebought cookies, the other day. They come and go in the shops, so I wanted to conjure up some of my own similar ones to chomp on when a dreaded dearth occurs at the co-op.

Wish I'd gotten a picture of my little helper in the kitchen (who, by the way, loves licking the insides of squeezed-out lemons!).

Does he make the pucker face after licking? Ha! This looks so delicious-who wouldn't want to "harness some sunshine?"

Reeni - No, Matthew didn't pucker at all; in fact, he asked for more!

K and S - Thanks! :)

Ooooh, these sound delicious! We love lemon, we love shortbread, so we'd have to love these.

Duodishes - I bet you would love these! My husband's coworkers devoured them - one guy ate three!

Jun LOVES lemons too! And HOT spicy dried ginger. And Kaki-no-tani. Hmmm...
