lebanese shortbread / box of 6
Katherine grew-up in a Lebanese household where traditions were kept and expressed in food, stories, and family weddings. Pronounced "ghri-bee" with a gutteral "g," these cookies always made an appearance at Christmastime as a gift from Lebanese neighbors. Every year Katherine would hide these cookies to enjoy as a Christmas treat all to herself, but they truly are a fantastic choice year-round and great to share around a cup of tea!
The crumbly texture from these cookies come from the ghee and granulated sugar that is whipped together for several minutes, incorporating lots of air into the cookie. We like ours topped with pine nuts, but they can also be made with almonds or pistachios. They are absolutely perfect paired with a cup of tea or strong coffee.
The Lebanese Shortbread cannot be shipped due to their crumbly nature. Available for local pick-up only!
LEBANESE FUNDRAISER - AUGUST 2020
We gave 21% of sales from boxes sold during the month of August + donations to help the country of Lebanon. Lebanon has experienced extreme economic crisis in recent months, leaving families hungry. On top of COVID-19 and years of political unrest, the explosion in Beruit has only added to the country's devastation. Money was given directly to families in Lebanon to be used for food, medicine, and other necessities.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PURCHASED AND DONATED. $480.48 WAS RAISED AND SENT TO LEBANON!
