Okay, so there will be no photos of the "making" portion of this little endeavor. Seriously, I would have lost my mind trying to juggle the food processor, sharp blade, little fingers, and unwieldy camera. And don't even get me started on the flour, which elicits shouts of glee from aforementioned three-year-old- "Oooo, pretty snow!"
So let's just skip to the warm, fresh baked just out-of-the-oven meyer lemon shortbread. Yum, right? Evidently not if you are three.
This was the expression I was met with when asking, "J, do you like the cookies?"
Let's just say he wasn't nearly as enthusiastic about the prospect of eating them as he was with the prospect of making them.
Three-year-old response- "I like Oreos!"
Oh well, perhaps his palate will be more refined in a few years, until then Oreos it is.
Happy boy=happy mama=more meyer lemon shortbread for me! That's an equation I can get behind.
