Dorie's Salted Butter Breakups.



There's not much to say here because name says it all for me...shortbread with a touch of salt..right up my alley, simple, pure, delicious..I used some nice sea salt I had on hand, but it was fine; I am so going to try this again with flakes of sel gris....you know. I just must suffer through another recipe of one of my favorite things: shortbread. Ah, the rigors of recipe testing....As a treat, this could not be much easier. Mix. Chill. Pat into large "rectangle." Don't get crazy about it being perfect..bake and serve whole, let guests break off their own pieces...mmm. Happy.

I've only posted two photos here, but trust me. I took a ridiculous number of them...because I'm in love with food shortbread...add salt and I'm over the moon (you know: the really big one that graced our skies last night! How cool was that?)....
Be sure to check out other results over at French Fridays with Dorie.

Looks fantastic! They were definitely my kind of dessert as well (I kept running into the kitchen to break off a piece!).

Your cookie looks great! I love the playfulness of the shape and the sweet/salty combo. And, I agree, wasn't that an amazing moon last night? Thanks for commenting on my blog. I've added yours to my Google Reader and look forward to reading your future posts.

Your cookie looks perfect. I have talked about the super moon for over a week and then forgot to look at it last night!!

Your cookie looks fantastic! I was so sad when we were done with ours. The good thing is that they're easy to make; the downside is that they are too easy to eat!
