What is it about shortbread cookies that make my tastebuds tingle? Those beautiful buttery nuggets of pleasure.
Having spent a year in England and returning to Singapore, I felt like baking something that reminded me of the lovely moments that I had shared with friends in England. Something that would help me to re-enact those lovely conversations over civilized and uncivilized sessions of sipping tea.
Since I had dried lavender in my fridge, I decided to infuse it into the shortbread. Well, I also added chocolate rice into the cookies so that the sweetness of the chocolate would balance out the strong scent of lavender.
Here are a couple of photos documenting the process! I had a completely enjoyable and sensory experience working on the dough as the lovely smell of lavender permeated the corners of my kitchen, enwrapping me in a warm, purple glow.
There you have it! Lavender chocolate chip shortbread rounds!!
Hope you enjoyed my sharing of this experience with you. If anyone would like this recipe, feel free to comment or drop me a request via e-mail at:
Cheers and I urge you to either bake some shortbread or enjoy some buttery shortbread with a cup of tea or with a glass of cold milk for supper. It never fails to uplift my spirits.
