mother’s day + fennel and olive oil cookies

April 20, 2012 |  Category:   the biz

In another amazing marker of where-is-this-year going, we’re already thinking about Mother’s Day. This year we have a new cookie to put into our gift boxes – a fennel and olive oil shortbread. The olive oil, which replaces half of the butter in the recipe, gives the cookie a rich, crumbly texture and flavor, while the fennel adds a mild hint of licorice to the mix. It’s an interesting combo. Also new for mother’s day is Ginger Marshmallows. You can find both gift boxes, with or without our tea towels right here and also on Etsy.

    I have TOTALLY sent this link to my husband in the hopes of getting this for Mother’s Day. And if I don’t, I’m ordering something here for myself on my own! Earl Grey sandwich cookies? THEY SHALL BE IN MY TUMMY, I have willed it so.

    Jenna, you are my new favorite blog. I read it right before I go to bed, while I’m eating my dessert. It’s such a treat (I mean the blog). I love how honest and funny you are. And these confections….they sound soooo good! (side note – I work at Vosges Haut-Chocolat and I’m obsessed with flavor combinations). I’m curious, do you think you’ll ever create any gluten free goodies? yep – I’m one of those poor souls – no more Belgium beer – no more shortbread cookies. Let me know, I’ll be your first customer.

    @Lara, glad you liked them so much!
    @Brenda thank you! no gluten free cookies yet. that would take some experimentation and we can’t quite find the time for that just yet. I do hope that we can though some day!
