Lavender Shortbread


My car died on Tuesday. $500 later it is running again. But I lost two days of getting stuff done. And I feel like I still haven't quite caught up. I had hoped to get the Christmas dolls started. I spent several hours bouncing in and out of the studio. That was frustrating. 


Thursday I did manage to make some delightful Lavender Shortbread. It is a slightly modified recipe from VeganYumYumcom.  I love this link and the instructions. I didn't use Rosewater. And I added some lemon rind (from one lemon). I like the combination of citrus and lavender, but it is a very strong combination. They play well off each other. 


All in all I have a very busy week that was wonderfully productive. Let's see how the weekend shakes out. Happy Halloween!

Sorry to read about your car, but at least your moving again.

That shorbread looks lovely, it is something on my to do list. Hopefully it will look as good as yours.

Usually my shortbread is a mess, but the trick was using a spring form pan. It was lovely.
