In the same way I was so enamoured by scones after reading Enid Blyton (the kids in her books always had scones with jam), I was smitten with shortbread after coming across the many raves in recipe books about them.
So off I went, armed with a self-written recipe and much bravado. (Considering how this was my first time making it.. I based my ingredients-ratio on Marks and Spencer's shortbread)
Yeah, severe overcrowding
The taste was fine. The buttery smell that wafted out of the oven was simply amazing.
BUT... I just held it for 10 seconds
And it was so soft,
Mebbe I put too much rice flour/corn flour
I might consider following the tried-and-tested, realiable recipes in the books.
Here I take the chance to show off some of the nicer photos I took during Mid- Autumn.
Not a full moon yet (didn't go on the actual Mid-Autumn Festival) but beautiful enough..
Have a great weekend! :)
Love, Kang Li
