Plus it also has some really good recipes that are totally doable. Because our Emily has a bit of a sweet tooth she naturally tried a cookie recipe first. And these shortbread wonders did not disappoint. (This recipe is adapted from the Brown Sugar Shortbread recipe listed under Delicious Desserts.)
What you'll need:
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
What you'll do:
Cream butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl
Gradually stir in the flour
Knead until smooth on a lightly floured surface
Roll into balls, place on a cookie sheet and flatten with a fork*
Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown.
The first time my husband tried one he said, and I quote, "These are special." Which translates to "Make these often."
And we have. They taste great with a cup of coffee or tea...not to sweet :-)

*The original recipe calls for shaping the dough into a rectangle shape before cutting into strips and pricking with a fork. Em found it easier to make them into balls.
