As to the shape of my shortbread, I did not attempt the tea bag because "it's been done before". At the time I was feeling very girly and I could only find a flower shape cut out that coincidently lends itself to the perfect portion per biscuit/flower. And to prove myself as a complete nutritional over-achiever, I did make the 'chocolate' from raw cacao, organic coconut butter and organic coconut palm sugar although I only half dipped the flowers.
Oh and the response from said daughter that issued the challenge "nom nom ... it's very rich, just like real shortbread but better and with a hint of caramel ... yeah good, real good Mumma." That'll do, that'll do.
Enjoy your day. Lee x
