As you may or may not have read before, Christmas is like my all time favourite time of the year. The drinks, the parties…THE FOOD. There is just something special about the food this time of year. Maybe because it’s a little bit minty, maybe because it’s consumed with gratuitous amounts of alcohol…probably because of the alcohol.
Anyway, we have a lot of parties to go to and a lot of food to prepare. Typically I bake a lot of cookies and prepare a lot of dips. I always struggle with how to transport all my goodies. I mean sure, I could toss them in my missmatched containers or slap on some no name plastic wrap, but they always end up falling apart, leak and look very sad.
Anyway, GLAD offered to send me some amazingly festive containers to help make my life easier. What I was MOST excited about was the ADORABLE Press and Seal. This stuff is my GO TO kitchen must-have. It sticks to virtually everything, creates a TIGHT seal and works for both refrigeration AND for the freezer.
I’m serious you guys, even if GLAD hadn’t sent me the Press N’ Seal, I would still sing it’s praises. It’s just the best.
I also looooove the containers. Lids snap together for easy storage, stack nicely and are the perfect size for transporting cookies and snacks around. Just plop on a bow, and you’ve got the PERFECT gift. They also look adorable if you’re just keep snacks on your counter.
Now, these Toblerone Shortbread Cookies were MEANT to hang out on the counter for awhile, but my Father-in-Law and Husband (who HATE shortbread btw) made short work of making these disappear.
This is probably the best shortbread I’ve ever made in my life. It was so soft and chewy and melt-in-your-mouthy. I can’t even. I just can’t.
Also, this recipe is ALL about the butter.
