SHORTBREAD COOKIES RECIPE

What you will need:

* 2 cups flour
* 1 cup butter, softened
* 1/2 tsp baking powder
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1 egg
* grated rind of one lemon

Directions:

1. Sift flour and baking powder together in a small bowl.
2. Cream butter, add sugar slowly, mixing well.
3. Mix in egg and lemon rind.
4. Add flour/baking powder mixture, mix in well.
5. Shape into balls about the size of a golf ball, place on pan, flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass.
6. Bake at 300° for 15 to 20 minutes, just until a bit golden on the edges.
7. These last well if kept in a tightly covered container, and actually taste even better after a day or two as the flavors develop.

Um, I’ve never tried this recipe. I wrote it down on a cocktail napkin a few months ago when I was at the Cecil. Let me know how it turns out.

  1. “Um, I’ve never tried this recipe. I wrote it down on a cocktail napkin a few months ago when I was at the Cecil. Let me know how it turns out.”I am not likely to try the recipe myself, but I am intrigued and want to know more about how you came to discuss shortbread at the Cecil.On the other hand it might be worth trying the recipe just to see the look on people’s faces after they try one and I say I learned how to make them at the Cecil.

  2. Phil, the story of how I got this recipe will have to wait for another time… for now, let’s enjoy our strip club cookies.
