These shortbread cookies are the best we’ve ever had. Period. Really. The delicate, crumbly texture and combination of rich butter, subtle sweetness and hint of salt bring all our English teatime fantasies to life.
The cookies are made with eight simple ingredients: all-purpose flower, butter, sweet cream, sugar, almonds, cashew nuts, salt and vanilla. Oh, almost forgot! Bunches & Bunches founder and head baker Tamalpais Star Roth-McCormick ("Pai") says they’re also made with love, which is “the most precious ingredient” of all… So make that nine.
And can we talk about that drop-dead-gorgeous cigar box they come in? Totally gift-worthy.
TIP OF THE TONGUE
If you don’t eat these with a dollop of raspberry jam, clotted cream and a cup of strong tea, you’re doing it wrong. Pinky out, people!
