Yes, you read right. These are my shortbread buttons. I found this recipe a while ago & finally made them the other day. I don't think the recipe is anything different & I would probably do a different recipe next time, but the buttons sure are different & cute! I thought they would be fun to take to playgroup. You see, I have a four year old fan of my cookies there. Apparently he cheers when he hears that I am setting up. Setting up means bringing morning tea! I think these passed Master T's taste test & scrutiny & given a thumbs up.
Today was a good day for slow cooking soup so I had this Lamb Shank & Pearl Barley Scotch Broth in all day. Oh boy was it good. Easy to put together too. The recipe isn't for the slow cooker really but I just put it all in there anyway & it was just perfect. Next time I need to make a whole stack more though. You can't have too much soup in this weather right now!
