Congratulations on the nomination – and as much as I love coffee cakes and shortbread cookies, pleas don’t limit your blog to recipes of them! I know what you mean, but you have posted so many things I have actually cooked! And not many of them are cookies. I think I will have to try these, though. They somehow seem to join a perfect crumb with the earthiness of whole wheat flour: I would have thought it was impossible.
These cookies are a huge problem for me because when I read ‘whole wheat’ I actually see ‘eat as many as you want, they’re good for you, go on, have 20.’ Slippery slope! Nevertheless, thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to make ’em and smash them together with raspberry jam :)
Ditto on the bakery crawl being the best idea ever. Dang. These cookies sound super! I’m not positive that it produces a shortbread cookie exactly (the difference being less butter?), but the recipe for sugar cookies in Sunday Suppers at Lucques is amazing.
I love whole wheat shortbread but I make it with alice medrich’s whole wheat shortbread recipe with cocoa nibs. One time I had only whole wheat flour, no all purpose and the cookies were divine. May I also suggest these cookies: http://www.sugoodsweets.com/blog/2008/05/seaweedcookies/
These are gorgeous, Tim. Shortbread cookies are right up there on my favorite cookie list – jostling for top spot with the classic chocolate chip cookie. I’ve never added whole wheat flour to mine, but that is a nice way to feel less guilty about eating an extra one. Or three.
Give me shortbread cookies over any others any day! These look divine and with whole wheat flour, I can pretend it’s somewhat healthy. Ahem. Sadly, I’m of the what?-I-have-to-weigh-this? camp. Eventually I’ll get over it.
Congrats on the nomination. You’re right, great blogs all but I know who has my vote.
