Almond Poppy Seed Shortbread

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ruth Tisdale

Good, flaky delicate flavor. The poppyseed add a nice texture. It's not overly sweet. I decided to add the poppyseed and almond flavor to my shortbread cookies one day and was pleasantly surprised.

Delicious! Two of my favorites together - almond and poppyseed - is just heavenly. I was actually told that someone "almost lost a hand" in a fight over the batch I gave my friends!
