Sometimes you need that extra somethin’ in your baking. Usually, I reach for Bourbon (god bless you, Kentucky), but lately I’ve been reaching for Amaretto. You may remember this lovely almond-infused liqueur from this california almond fudge pie or this incredible amaretto almond bunt cake.
This chai spiced shortbread is an amazing little cookie. I will get to them in a minute, but first…a trip to CVS. About two weeks ago, I was having the mother of all allergy attacks. As we were out of medication and Dave is the best, he went to CVS to hook me up.
Case in point: the bright and sweet flavor of this lemon velvet cake, the refreshing mix of lemonade and green tea of this bourbon arnold palmer, the lemon-lime juice that compliments basil beerade so well, and the list goes on. The citrus family has always been good to me, except for grapefruit.
