Alana After I posted about making pie with Stephen, Theresa pointed out to me that it had been a long while since I last baked anything. I suppose that I have been busy going camping on the weekends and working, but that does not excuse me! I have had the Duchess recipe for lavender shortbread … More Lavender Shortbread Cookies II
Alana It’s been pretty rainy in Edmonton lately. Before I started my dialysis training, I was spending a lot of my time knitting and hanging out at the Tea Girl. I want to start practicing my pastry school recipes more often, but wasn’t really in the mood to do anything that requires brain power, as … More Lavender Shortbread Cookies
Alana The final component of my Christmas baking trio was whipped shortbread cookies. I say “was”, because these didn’t exactly work out the way I had planned. In research when your study gets negative or inconclusive results, the research generally is not published. This is an unfortunate fact because one study’s shortcomings could help other … More Whipped Shortbread Cookies with Mint Chocolate
Alana The final addition to the baking care package Theresa and I sent with Stephen and his friends on the bachelor party (mentioned originally in my cheddar and caramelized white chocolate scone post) was cookies! This is the first version of the brown sugar shortbread cookie recipe that I posted. I forgot how good they … More Bachelor Party Part III: Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies
Roopa I don’t know if you’ve had cardamom shortbread cookies before, but they taste like my childhood. When I picture the taste of happiness, it resembles these cookies. That could be some upbringing bias right there, but I’m OK with that. I’ve made these cookies once before, but they didn’t turn out as I’d hoped. … More Cardamom Shortbread Cookies: V2
Alana FINALLY I’m done my community semester! This morning was my final, and I’ve been having a pretty good day since. A bunch of us went to Original Joe’s for drinks. Since then I’ve been rock climbing and baked cookies 🙂 AND I still plan on lounging in my hammock (yay beautiful weather!) then more … More Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies II
Alana I was chatting with my friend Mike about the watercolour cookies that I had made, and about what kind of cookies we liked. He mentioned shortbread, which I also love. I went through the Best Cookie Cookbook again to see what it had in terms of shortbread, and noticed a recipe for brown sugar … More Brown Sugar “Shortbread” Cookies
CARDAMOM SHORTBREAD COOKIES Roopa I used one quarter of this recipe, and added 12 ground cardamom pods (about 1.5 tsp). They smell like cardamom, but the flavour didn’t go through too intensely. Next time, I would leave the cardamom in bigger chunks (and maybe add a few more pods) instead of grinding it so much.
Alana The time period between finishing my last final (from winter semester) and starting spring term I was on the most ridiculous activity bender… mostly involving drinking. One of my more sober activities early on was thoroughly sifting through all things baking on Pinterest. I stumbled across a picture of sugar cookies filled with sprinkles, … More Confetti Whipped Shortbread Cookies
ALMOND SHORTBREAD COOKIES Roopa I tried out the shortbread recipe from the Sprinklebakes book today, which can also be found here. I used almond extract instead of vanilla, and they turned out fantastic. They are quite easy to make, and it’s also easy to gauge when they’re done!
