Shortbread is my favorite “cookie.” Of course, in most of the world it is called a “biscuit,” and everyone knows that I love a biscuit!

Shortbread is like the blank canvas of cookies. It’s great by itself or dressed up with lemon curd, praline pecan topping, or dipped in chocolate. This version is light and flakey, not too sweet, and perfect to go with tea or coffee.
