My cousin Julie was asking for “my” recipe for shortbread. I make a killer shortbread. Except the recipe is not mine, it’s my friend, Joanne’s. I don’t know where she got it, but here it is, so that the rest of you can make killer Scotch Shortbread, too.
Instead of using sprinkles on top, I like to lightly coat the top with plain old white sugar. And cut it BEFORE it cools. That’s important!
As I was writing this post, I couldn’t get that song “Shortnin’ Bread” that Ethel Mertz sings in one of my favorite “I Love Lucy” episodes, “Ethel’s Hometown”. Ethel stabs Fred, Lucy, and Ricky in the back, and puts on a “solo show” without her three sidekicks. Or at least that’s what she thought! I LOVE Fred and his tree! I found Ethel’s solo show on YouTube, so you can share in the laughter!
