Shortbread

She is the Goddess of cookies. She draws her strength from the simplicity of three individual components: butter, flour, sugar. Nothing more. She flaunts her sophistication in their combination - a buttery, flaky, crisp texture. And just when she is threatened by predictability, she adds a few vanilla beans and salt as a reminder that no other cookie can do what she does.
