Shortbread is one of those simple yet delicious cookies that takes no time to whip up and stores for days! If you are looking for that perfect mix of versatile and yummy - shortbread is your cookie! Our Rose London Fog recipe is vegan but still delivers that buttery, crisp punch you crave from shortbread, while tasting sophisticated and elevated from rose. This pairs perfectly with a cup of tea and a skyward pinky.
Note: Plan to chill the dough for 30 minutes prior to baking and use the time to whip up a Reishi Hot Cacao. Cacao and rose are two ingredients that help relieve symptoms related to PMS, in other words they work together in more ways than one.
DYK: Shortbread is a centuries old cookie originally baked for Mary, Queen of Scots. If it’s good enough for the queen, it’s good enough for us!
Bonus: Roses are loaded with vitamins A, E and collagen to boost your skin radiance from the inside out. Cookies for glowing skin? Sign us up.
