    Blogger of the Day: Joey at Flicking the Vs

    Shortbread cookies are too simple to pass up…yumful in a comfort food kinda way and supereasy! Make enough to fill up your cookie jar, then wrap up a boxful for the neighbor that gave you tomatoes from her garden, a friend who lent you a couple bucks last time you went out or a sweetie who makes you smile. 🙂

    Yes, there are boatloads of bloggers who do shortbread cookies in fancy gourmet ways that I totally love but Joey’s shorties caught my eye for 2 reasons…
    1.Owls. Owls, people! How can you not love these chubby little chirpers?
    2.Joey is just flat out slyly funny, blasting out whatever’s on her mind and making me lmao. Go…read. You’ll see. 😉

    Shortbread Owls

    I don’t like making food in animal shapes, because even then I feel sorry for eating them LOL!
    I’ve not had shortbread in a while, must make/buy some!
