I keep noticing that so many of my favorite things to eat are easy to make and have very few ingredients, and that the success of a recipe is really determined by the quality of each ingredient. I guess I knew this before, but this shortbread recipe is a good reminder: a creamy organic butter, golden local honey, tender freshly-cut rosemary, and fine salt make all the difference in the flavor of this dish.
- 2 1/2 cups almond flour
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt or fleur de sel
- 1/2 teaspoon turbinado sugar
Melt butter. Mix all ingredients except turbinado sugar. Press dough into 10 inch tart pan. Use a fork or toothpick to make many tiny holes in dough to insure thorough cooking. Sprinkle top with turbinado.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
