Lately I have been a little overwhelmed with everything going on in my life. I feel like there is always so much to do and I don't ever have a second to sit down and just breathe. But luckily for me, when I get into the kitchen, all my stress seems to disappear.
So this week, I decided to get into the kitchen and create something bright and colorful (that always seems to make me feel better). I took a simple shortbread base and just added a little food coloring to mix things up. I know the checkerboard pattern makes these cookies look a little complicated, but don't be intimidated! All you need is a ruler and sharp knife (or bench scraper) and you are good to go!
The best part about these cookies is that you can make the dough up to a week in advance - you just have to store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake them off! So next time you are feeling a little overwhelmed with life, these cookies are sure to brighten your day!
*Makes about 30 cookies
