i had 4 ripe pears staring at me in the face this morning, wondering how to use them before they give out...and i remembered this recipe....
but i will morph this recipe into something more superiorly nutricious--ie add whole wheat flour and ground flax seed--i have been very succesful in incorporating these ingredients into cooking light baked items in lieu of white flour
I made this a couple of years ago. The recipe was super easy, and I thought the shortbread was delicious. My only complaint is that the serving size feels very small (to me) - but that might just be because I've spent too much time overeating in the past.
i don't make cookies--but i make tons of yummy muffins and coffee cakes from cooking light magazine---i just pulled a pear upside cake that i will make even more healthier by taking out the butter completely and substituting with yogurt
follow me on my personal journey to feed my family nutritious food while examining the cost in time and money to do it!
