My Aunt asked if I could make shortbread.  I said I didn’t know, but I’d try.  Thought I had all-purpose flour on hand.  I didn’t. (blasphemy! and I call myself a baker!)  I had 4 bags of whole wheat flour.  Whole Wheat Shortbread Cookies?  Sure, why not?!

Dough rolled out and cut using a round cookie cutter. 

Fresh from the oven




They were buttery and crumbly like shortbread usually is.  Personally, I’m a fan.  Work peeps didn’t seem to mind either.  This container is now empty! =)



What does a dough ball turn into?

This ball of dough……..

Chicken, chorizo, cheese, mushrooms, green peppers and sun-dried tomatoes
