I made another pair of Star Athena’s Arctic Blast Mitts as an auction item for our youth mission trip fundraiser.
They look just like the ivory ones, except they’re ice blue.
A quick knit! Malabrigo Silky Merino on size 3 needles, so wonderful to knit with.
And I had a craving for shortbread, so this happened.
Chocolate Chip Shortbread
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 and 1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips or butterscotch chips (I used mini chocolate, but I’ve also used butterscotch)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt, and then beat these with the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in chips. Press into an ungreased 9 inch square pan.
Bake 18-20 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool 20-30 minutes in pan on wire rack.
Score shortbread with sharp knife into desired size servings, but do not cut all the way through. Invert onto rack and cool completely.
Break into pieces.
