I am a mother to two sweet girls, Evie and Iris, a wife to a wonderful husband, Billy who keeps me grounded, a marriage and family therapist by trade and a baker by heart.
When Iris was born, I wanted to stay home with the girls full time which has led me to where I am now, doing what I love. Baking the shortbread cookies has allowed me to stay in touch with my creative side while still being close to my family.
This recipe has been in my family for years, and still to this day, when I taste a bit of the dough it takes me back to my childhood.
I love baking for others and offering my goods to celebrate what life gives us--births and marriages, friends, and family. I believe that's what life is all about.
