Lemon Rosemary Shortbread

I was intrigued when I first found this recipe on Flipboard (hands down my favorite app for finding random, fun articles). It looked so simple and clean; a nice change to all the gooey, dense cookies I was
used to baking. 

But the driving force behind recreating this was mostly nostalgia.  Shortbreads (and meringues - another post on that to come) were the go-to snacks my siblings and I munched on as we nursed our chlorine soaked, aching muscles after swim practice. And man, it has been years since I've last had one (mostly because we stopped training). 

So I decided it was time to recreate my childhood.

The recipe is fool proof and didn't require any complicated, expensive ingredients. The shortbreads came out beautifully buttery brown, with a light crumbly sweetness highlighted by a dash of lemon and a sprinkle of rosemary. An instant crowd hit.

So the next time you're craving something sweet without the heavy aftermath, try it out! 
The recipe I followed can be found here. I've also reposted it after the break.
