We sent out a huge order of shortbread mixes this month too!
For the order we tweeked the recipe for our older Herbed Shortbread and renamed it Lemon Lavender Shortbread and we crafted an oatmeal shortbread with seasonal spices as well as a Chocolate shortbread. And we also included our Orange Poppy Seed Shortbread and a new Holiday Shortbread with great seasonal spices.
To make the best shortbread you need flour, sugar and butter and not much else. This wonderfully simple combination lends itself to including herbs. Try these quick variation using a traditional shortbread recipe.
