After years of steadfast devotion to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and his shortbread recipe, I've had my head turned by Lorraine Pascale and her Dreamlike Shortbread from Baking Made Easy:
And it is indeed dreamlike: simple to make and yet so tasty--somehow light and moreish at the same time. So while I'll still make Hugh's Lavender Shortbread with our flowers from the plot, I think I may have found my new everyday biscuit.
But does this mean I should desert Jamie and try Lorraine's pizza crust too? This could be the thin end of the wedge.
