  2. Hi Tandy, I love te look of these shortbread and the addition of basil is right up my street. I’m trying to think up some strawberry creation to go with it as they are such a good match like tomatoes.

  14. Love the story behind this post – I have a rosemary & thyme shortbread I’ve been making for Christmas for a few years now – I love the herb & cookie combo! I always made my dad rhubarb desserts growing up as he loves it (do you have rhubarb in SA?)

    • Your shortbread sounds amazing! I have not been able to find rhubarb where we live, but I know that my parents can get it. They live in a big city which means they have access to a lot more fresh produce than we do here 🙂

  16. I like the idea of using basil in shortbread, especially after trying Colleen’s bay and citrus shortbread recipe at Christmas time. I’ll have to try this one soon, even if it is ages till strawberry season comes round again.
