Gentle Friends, we were out and about Saturday Thrifting, and overall it was a bust, but even with not quite the selection we're used to I did find a few treasures....
... from l to r - a box of sweet little handpainted glass ornaments and when I saw the Rosary box I thought that was all there was, then I popped it open and out fell a sterling Rosary, I bought this for Rico, then I found the Brown Bag shortbread pan, called "Norwegian Trees" for $4 - what a deal!!!
One of my all time, and I mean all time favorite cookies is shortbread. I have loved Walkers for decades, but I've never tried to make shortbread. On Sunday afternoon after Mass, I thought, "I'm sure I can do this" and sure enough using the recipe on the web site.................. slam bam - in a pan - from start to finish - about 45 minutes later out of the oven popped.......
..... this delectable piece of pastry - I'll never buy shortbread again. I think I got scared and left it in a few minutes too long as it did brown a bit more than it should, but it is (was) oh so good!!! That large crack on the right is were I caught it on the pan when I turned it upside down....
...... while still warm I cut it into pieces and sprinkled a little sugar on top for sparkle.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again soon!!
