My patriotism stirred recently, when I spotted
a very kitsch, Australian shaped, cookie cutter.
It was quickly purchased and I came home to
whip up a batch of cookies to give to friends
and family on Australia Day......26 January.....
for those not familiar with our national day.
As is quite common, Tasmania wasn't included
as an additional shape, to make it a true
representation of Australia. I thought about
trying to fashion some Tassies out of dough,
but it all got a bit too hard!
I adapted the recipe from another shortbread
I make, so that it included some green and
gold, Australia's national colours, in the form
of rosemary and lemon.
It's a dead easy recipe, but if you're a real cook,
maybe you'll shudder!
Anyway, it was a fun little exercise and the reaction
hasn't been all bad!
Happy Australia Day everybody.
