But beware, this rose beauty is very light and fragile, be gentle and handle with care!
Adapted from BBC GoodFood
250-g butter, softened
100g caster sugar
1 tablespoon rose water
250g plain flour
100g corn flour
1 heaped tablespoon dried rose petals, washed and dried
1/2 tsp salt
icing sugar, for dusting
- Put the butter, sugar and rose water in a food processor and whizz until pale and creamy. Add the flour, cornflour, rose petals and salt, and pulse until the mixture clumps together into small pieces. Tip onto a lightly floured work surface and bring the dough together as a ball, but don't overwork it. Roll the dough to a 25 cm circle, about 1 cm thick. Trim around a large plate to give a really neat edge. ?Transfer to a large baking sheet. Use 2 fingers to crimp all the way around the edge of the dough then, using a fork, mark dotted lines to portion the shortbread into 8 wedges. Put the tray in the fridge and chill for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat oven to 180C. Bake the shortbread for 25 mins until golden and cooked through Leave to cool completely on the tray. To decorate, place a stencil or doily over the shortbread and dust with a generous layer of icing sugar.
Note: Omit the rose water if prefer original flavor. If using essence, add 1/2 teaspoon. I rolled the dough a little thicker than 1 cm thick. For denser and firmer shortbread, make into smaller cookies.
Jars of Clay
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all - surpassing power is from God and not from us. 2 Corinthians 4:7
What is this treasure in jars of clay? What is this jars of clay? This treasure is non other than the Gospel; the rich and invaluable truths to preach to others. We are the jars of clay. A fragile earthen ware which is with chips and cracks.
This treasure in us has shown its value in sustaining us through many trials and errors. A power which is from God and not from us.
