TWD - Rose-Hibiscus Shortbread Fans
For Tuesdays with Dorie this week, I chose to make the Rose-Hibiscus Shortbread Fans. I was a little underwhelmed by the choice initially, because I can take or leave store-bought shortbread. It is without fail hard and fairly flavourless, almost waxy tasting.
However, these shortbread fans were nothing of the sort:
They were melt-in-your-mouth good. I couldn't taste much rose, nor hibiscus for that matter. My shortbread tasted predominantly of passionfruit, as I only had passionfruit-hibiscus tea (from another Dorie project, but don't ask me to remember which one).
I went through the whole process and iced the shortbreads and sprinkled them with sanding sugar. However, I preferred the shortbreads uniced.
These shortbreads are gorgeous - I would make them again. They would be a wonderful Christmas gift.
