Thursday Tea and Cookies

I spent most of my morning in a lengthy meeting, so the cookies are particularly happy things to have today.

Today’s cookies are the Honey Lavender Shortbread cookies discussed here. They are lovely things, and I particularly like the tang of salt in the midst of the honey and the lavender. It’s a really lovely blend of flavors. (There’s a variant I just found that includes lemon zest, which would add another layer of flavor in there, too.)

For today’s resources, I pulled out books on food – several on honey, but also The Hungry Planet and In Defense of Food and several other titles of that kind. (And a book on Shakespearean foods…)
