Making shortbread is so easy.
Take a stick of butter out of the fridge to soften.
Go outside and pick 1/2 cup of the yellow petals of dandelions.
Now let's get to it!
Set oven to 300 degrees F
1/2 C butter
1/4 C sugar
zest of 1/2 lemon
1 t vanilla extract (optional)
1/2 C flour
I placed the ball of dough between 2 pieces of waxed paper and rolled it to about 1/3 inch thickness, and transferred to a parchment covered pan. It might be a good idea to chill it for 15 minutes now. (I did not, and had to re-score after the bake.)
Bake for about 30 minutes, until they are firm and just golden.
