I’m so glad you are enjoying the Cooking with Clara videos. She’s a really neat lady, isn’t she? We’ve already made a couple of her recipes here at BrightHaven. Have you tried any yet?

Here at BrightHaven, one of our VERY FAVORITE breakfasts is shortbread cookies with hot, strong coffee. We consider it a real luxury, as I’m sure most folks would. The recipe that I normally use is my “Hurricane Cookie” recipe, with modifications for lack of hurricanes!

2 c flour
1 c sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 t salt
1 t baking powder
1 egg
1 t vanilla extract
1 t almond extract (optional)

cream butter and sugar together, add egg and beat together. Add extracts, combine. Add dry ingredients. Dough should be hand-moldable. Flatten on slightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes (nothing is definite, here 🙂 ) Enjoy!
