The kitchen is not really my favourite place to spend a lot of time. I cook what we need to eat and get out of there as fast as I can.
But I do enjoy the outcome of my work in the kitchen sometimes. Like today… today was chocolate shortbread day.
Last year I discovered a recipe for chocolate shortbread and decided that it would be the ideal gift for my daughter’s teachers. I baked lots and handed it out and it was a great success. K. loved helping to make it too.
With school ending this Friday, I knew I had to bite the bullet and get it made. My goal was 18 shortbreads – three batches, so I dropped my daughter at school, picked up the unsalted butter that I forgot to buy over the weekend and set to work.
The best thing about this shortbread is that it contains a block of Lindt 70% dark chocolate. One bit for the shortbread… one bit for me!
