Shortbread 3 Ways

To get you into holiday baking mode, we’ve rounded up 3 of our shortbread cookie recipes. Each are made using a classic shortbread recipe but have unique flavour twists to shake things up a little.

First up is Lemon Thyme Shortbread. Lemon zest brightens up the classic buttery sweet taste and a bit of fresh thyme adds a nice herbaceous note. This is classic shortbread taken to the next level.  Recipe here

Next we have our Brown Sugar Shortbread with Garam Masala. If you aren’t familiar with the spice blend Garam Masala, you must try it! It’s a comforting blend of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg,  cardamom, cumin and pepper that pairs really well with these brown sugar shortbread cookies. Think cinnamon sugar with a bit of an extra kick.  Recipe here

Last but not least, we  have our savoury Asiago Pesto Shortbread cookies. Instead of being sweet, these are savoury and packed with asiago cheese and a hint of pesto. These would go great served as a cheese plate accompaniment and offer a nice change from all the sweet things we tend to eat around the holidays. Recipe here
