This is the best, but don't tell my grandma! She and my mom compete about who has the best shortbread--my vote goes to my mom. I love this stuff, it's so dense yet it melts in your mouth at the same time. It brings me back to my childhood.

This was created by my dad and I when we discovered fingerling potatoes in the grocery store. We cut them with a fancy cutter to make the ridged edges but you can just use a regular old knife. Very simple and easy and taste better than deep fried fatty french fries you get in the pub-without the guilt! excellent served alongside fish. You can add more spices if you like-but the basic salt and pepper allows the lovely flavour of the potatoes to shine through.
