TWD: Rose-Hibiscus Shortbread Fans
Once again, I am back baking with the Tuesdays with Dorie group. This go-round we are baking from Dorie's Cookies, a beautifully photographed book with delicious recipes. I've already made several kinds of cookies with good results, and several blogging friends suggested I join in.
For the first February choice, I chose the Rose-Hibiscus Shortbread Fans. I love shortbread and have made one of the other shortbread recipes in the book. On hand, I had rose water and an herbal tea containing hibiscus flowers.
While I liked the cookies, I honestly couldn't taste any of the flavors. I did ice them, although the icing was flavorless as well. The cookies are pretty, but could use either stronger or different flavoring. For a basic shortbread cookie, though, they pass the test.
If you're curious what the other bakers thought, go to the TWD website and check the links.
