Here’s the thing friends. Shortbread cookies can be very addicting.
Butterscotch Shortbread cookies? Well, let’s just say I warned you.
Shortbread cookies are one of the easiest cookies to make. But for some reason, these gave me a little bit of a challenge. See normally, I make the dough, wrap it in saran wrap, chill it, slice and bake.
But today I was a little hurried. And I browned the butter (something I don’t usually do with shortbread cookies). I wanted to infuse a little extra butterscotch flavor into these, so browning the butter had to be done. But the dough wasn’t ‘right’. And I didn’t want to chill it (did I mention I was in a hurry?). So instead of throwing it out, I did what any genius baker would do. I added an egg.
Seriously, I had no idea if it would work or not (I don’t normally put eggs in my shortbread).
