Almond Shortbread

a wonderful recipe from my dear friend Douglas H.


I rolled half the batch & 'formed' the other half using a teaspoon.
The unrolled biscuits looked nicer and less uniform in my opinion.

Riesling, Pinot Noir and Rose are the best wines to pair with Almond Shortbread.

Having cooled, the texture of the unrolled pastry far exceeded the texture of the rolled shortbreads.
My advice would be to grab a teaspoonful of dough, place it on the baking sheet, then bring the mixture together with your fingertips. No rolling. No kneading. No excessive heat/touching (developing gluten & making them slightly tougher than those not 'overworked).

You can also use a small buttered ice cream scoop to form cookies and put icing sugar on when cookies are hot, sticks to cookie better when there warm
