― dare I say sentimental? The other night I listened to christmas music and made shortbread cookies. Shh! But don't tell anyone. I like to keep that side of myself under wraps. ∙ The cookies did not turn out well. I need to find a better recipe than the one in my Better Homes cookbook. ∙ I picked this package up because I had to have some shortbread in my belly. These store bought ones were much better than mine. ∙ I guess the festive bug has burrowed it's way inside a bit. .
