Before starting to bake last night, I began reading “Silver Sparrow” by Tayari Jones. I’m looking forward to some downtime to really dig into this novel. In the meantime, there is shortbread waiting to be nibbled.
What a fantastic conversation. There is so much to learn about Ms. Morrison. Her influence on the literary landscape began with her work as an editor of canonical works. Junot Diaz is clearly smitten and in awe.
Shortbread is one of my favorite cookies. It is buttery, sweet, a little salty and there are so many possible variations. The cocoa nibs are crunchy and have a hint of bitterness that works well with hot chocolate.
