Let’s talk shortbread for a quick minute.
Shortbread has two very distinctive characteristics; how short (i.e., dry and crumbly) it is, and its rich buttery flavor.
These Vanilla-Almond Shortbread Cookies have both of those features.
Take note, because the flavor of butter is very pronounced in these cookies, this is not the time to cheap out – you want to go for the good stuff! When this shortbread literally melts in your mouth you’ll be glad you did. In addition to their deep buttery flavor, these cookies have a subtle hint of both vanilla and almond, which makes them beautifully scented and a bit more special than your average shortbread.
These cookies keep well for up to a week, so they’re the perfect thing to keep on hand for sharing with friends who unexpectedly pop by for a cup of coffee or tea, plus they make a really pretty addition to a paleo-friendly cookie platter.Print
