It's week 10! We're getting close to finals which means I have to study. What's conducive to studying, you ask? Eating crazy amounts of bread, butter and sugar is.
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- grated zest from 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon loose chamomile tea
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
Heat oven to 325° F. Combine the butter, sugar, and salt in a mixer and beat until light and fluffy. Blend in the lemon zest, loose tea, and flour until smooth. Press into an 8-inch square cake pan.
Bake 30 minutes or just until the shortbread begins to turn golden. Cut into 9 squares, then cut each square into 2 triangles.
Cool completely on a wire rack. Remove the shortbread cookies from the pan.
This is pre-pink eye. I had time to clean the kitchen and take a shower while it was in the oven. It's good! You should make it.
