Shortbread Cookies



It's getting cooler by the day, the late sunrise and early sunset are just making me so lazy. Most of my days are spent curled with a book and I get up only when I have to. That's the only excuse for my long absences from blogging, plain laziness. Though I love winters, being from Mumbai since I'm not used to very cold weather and it sometimes gets a little unbearable. I'm so grateful for being in California where the weather is not so extreme and I thank God everyday, just thinking of a white winter gives me the creeps:).
I'm not cooking anything special nowadays, but I do miss baking a lot. Last week it was one of my friend's daughter's first birthday and I made these shortbread cookies by Ina Garten, that I had seen in Food Network a while back. The recipe is here.

Just cut them into different shapes...


Fresh out of the oven and of course I've already had a bite...


The cookies were incredibly buttery and delicious, just as she promised. Will surely be making this often.

  1. Very pretty cookies.. there. I agree with weather getting worse and the gloomy days.. I can't believe that I am praying for sunlight when in India I used to enjoy the rainy gloomy weather which used to come far between.
