Shortbread, at Last!

A GREY DAY,
an hour to spare,
a recipe to try.

Halfway through,
a knock at the door,
hands wiped on apron.

The neighbor
from down the block and around the corner,
an invitation to a cookie exchange.

And here I am
elbow-deep
in the cookie dough
of my dreams. 🙂

Yes, I will come.

My decades-long search for the perfect shortbread recipe ends with TOASTED COCONUT SHORTBREAD  from Annie’s Eats!
