MaD Cooking Show S1E3 Shortbread



This recipe comes from Joel's family and is called Scotch Shortbread. When he was younger, Joel would use half shortening and half butter as opposed to all butter as we've done in the video today.

Scotch Shortbread recipe

1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

Mix together ingredients. Roll out and cut into cookies or press dough into 8x8 pan. Bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit on non greased cookie sheet for 20-25 minutes. May be decorated using springler cookie presses.

As stated in the video, when we used the shortbread pan, we increased the temperature to 330 and cooked for closer to 30 minutes. Keep an eye on it as you cook, you're looking for a golden brown color.

  1. Yum. I agree that rosemary would be a great addition; it nicely flavors my favorite biscotti. Love that the whole family (minus one kitty?) got in on the act this time. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read.

The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
