Here is my shortbread recipe.



I’ve been feeling a bit meh lately, so I decided to make some comfort food for supper. Because I am awesome, I am going to share the recipe for one of the items (cinnamon caramel shortbread) with you. 

Don’t you feel special?

Because I like you, I am also going to give you the recipe up here at the top of the post instead of forcing you to scroll through miles of crap you do not care about before giving you the good stuff. You’re welcome. 

Cinnamon Caramel Shortbread Recipe:
1/2 cup soft butter  1 cup all purpose flour 1/3 cup powdered sugar 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional) 1 tbsp caramel syrup (optional)

Heat oven to 325f. 

Cream the butter, sugar, and caramel together. 

Add in the flour and cinnamon. 

At this point, other recipes will tell you turn your dough out onto a counter/cutting board and kneed it. Real talk? I don’t do that. You can if you want, though. Live your best life. 

Using a spoon (cold metal spoons are GREAT for this) spread the dough out into a pie pan or square baking dish. 

Bake for 30-35 minutes (I do 33). 

Cool on a rack in the pan for 30ish minutes before removing from the pan.

Cut into triangles/squares/rectangles/whatever. Consume. 

This shortbread goes well with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or – at least according to Haggis – ketchup flavored potato chips. 

According to the News, it’s going to rain tonight. This shortbread and a cup of tea should pair nicely with a rainy evening. I’ve had a week, y’all. Hell. I’ve had a month of Mondays. The cooler weather (finally) arriving was a bright spot for me. I am hoping the hygge promised to me by the weather people at News 12 Brooklyn will also be a bright spot. 

I also made a quick apple chutney to go with our vegetarian bratwurst and pierogi. It was tasty AF. I honestly don’t remember everything I included, so you don’t get directions to make that. I’ll try to remember to write it down next time because there will be a next time. That shit was delicious. 

Here are some pictures of my cooking process and rad shortbread pan (Here’s an unaffiliated link for you to click so you can buy one too!)
