I wanted something quick and very easy to do this week, so I chose these. Dreamlike Shortbread. I had a lot of errands to get through this weekend and one of them was to get en edge-trimmer for our lawn. The other-half has taken up the chore of mowing the grass occasionally; I think to get out of doing house-chores. The grass gets cut with the mower, but he can never get round the lawn’s edges close enough and it ends up looking spiky like Bart Simpson’s head.
So, we get home with the edge-trimmer, thinking we can just plug it and go, but oh no, there’s some small amount of assembly to do. To the instruction manual we go, only to find pictorial instructions which can be interpreted any which way but the right way. Why can't I have words? Why do they do that? I want words AND pictures! Needless to say it took much longer to assemble this thing than it should have. People, please – I have limited time for gardening.
With only five ingredients, your preparation for this shortbread is half done. My little head got distracted by one of the ingredients, though – Rice Flour. I had never baked with this before, but luckily found a bag in Sainsburys (in their gluten-free section). As this recipe only uses 60 grams, God knows what I'm gonna do with the rest of it! Any ideas? Answers on a postcard please. (or in the comments box below :-)
