Lemon Shortbread for Morning Visitors


  1. Don't you love shortcake? Did you make this pretties?

  2. Why yes, Vicki, I did make them. And why not more often! I always forget what a simple recipe it is.

    1 c. butter
    .5 c. sugar
    zest of 1 lemon
    2.5 c. flour

    325 for 20-25 mins!

  3. I want to reach through the computer screen and pluck one (or two) to enjoy with tea. Lovely photo! Your visitors enjoyed a fine treat, I am sure.

  4. You always take such nice food photos. I want to eat everything and I want to eat it off your dishes.

  5. Those look melt-in-your-mouth delicious!

    By the way, I am intrigued by the tray in your photo. Is it a thrift store find?

  6. Deann-

    Why yes! It was a fantastic thrift store find ($1.99!).

    It is actually a wood tray with the (late 50's/early 60's?) herbs shellac-ed to the surface. Super fun.

    You might be able to see it a bit better in this post:
