    Sugared Shortbread

    Shortbread is more or less a kind of cookie. It’s normally not very sweet, but the sugared version, of course, is. It’s crumbly-crunchy with rich flavor that goes VERY well with tea, coffee, cocoa, etc. I’ll see if I can’t find some around here for ya!

        I’m sure they do come in easy-to-mail packages. If I come across any, I’ll be sure to let you know!

            Hmm…so far I’m having trouble finding it here in the U.S. It seems to be more common in England. Would you be interested in a recipe for it, though? I know you like to bake. = )

            This one looks pretty nice:

            It includes glaze as well, but it can be omitted by simply adding the sugar before baking.
            Enjoy!
