When we surveyed our facebook followers, shortbread was the #1 answer to what treats they enjoy with their tea!
There are so many different flavors of shortbread, they are really rather a little versatile cookie! Or biscuit, if you are British.
Today we are adding yet another flavor to our growing list of shortbread choices, from Matcha Shamrock Shortbread to Chocolate Dipped Shortbread these ones have a whole wheat base and are infused with lavender earl grey.
But there is one more other secret ingredient to these special treats....
When I polled tea drinkers on various facebook groups, guess what the most common dessert to have with tea was?
Nope, not scones. Shortbread.
Shortbread is a very light, delicate cookie, very dainty and perfect for an afternoon tea time treat. It is light in flavor, yet sweet making it easy to pair with about any cup of tea. Whether it be black, green, or your favorite herbal.
These short bread cookies though.
They probably shouldn't be so yummy, it just means that I eat too many. It's a good thing they are free of any refined sweetener, sugar free and made with a whole grain flour. Healthier for sure, and dare I say even more flavor?!
