They're $25, so yes, loads loads cheaper..

PS. my latest post is inspired by this post..

manggy,
I know what you mean, I am in the process of procuring a reliable scale now :)And thanks for the award and the nice thing you said, you are too nice to me. :)

stardust,
checked and replied. :)

ovenhaven,
thanks.I actually thought I didn't capture the shortbread well.

aran goyoaga,
how exciting! Let me know if you make when you make something from the book, ok?

jacelyn,
thanks for visiting!

joanna in the kitchen,
thanks!

piggy,
I would pass you some without hesitation if we were in the same city. :)

veron,
it just shows that great minds think alike! Isn't that a great book?

kate,
yup, i agree that the weight measurements are more reliable. That's why I am getting a scale now. :)

patricia,
I hope you get to try making shortbread one day. it's really wonderful!

deborah,
thanks!

jessy,
you have sharp eyes!

renee,
thanks! I love you love the book as much as I do.

happy home baker,
ok....I try, although I really suck at doing meme.

dhanggit,
absolutely!

aforkfulofspaghetti,
thanks!

farhan,
wow~that is a lot of vanilla pods! Are they cheaper in Bali?

anonymous,
hmmm. i think the vanilla flavor may not be the same with extract. However, if you must, try using 1 tablespoon of the vanilla extract.

shara,
let me know how it turns out for you if you try!

emiline,
I am glad that the shortbread recipe is quite forgiving. A pinch of flour more or less doesn't affect the final outcome much. :)

I love shortbread! So simple, yet it tastes so good.
I'm glad it worked out ok, without a scale.
The pictures are beautiful! (Of course)

Hi! I know it's not the smartest thing, but I'm trying to make something for my friend's birthday... and it's tomorrow. I was wondering what the approximate amount of vanilla extract you could use in this recipe instead of vanilla bean? Thanks.

2008-02-21T19:51:00.000-06:00

I bought half a kilo of vanilla pods from Bali! That translates to like 100+ pods.. These would be perfect!

Hi Mandy,

Wow, your shortbread cookies look divine! After reading your blog, I immediately ordered that cookbook. I can't wait to get it. I also love your photos, they are stunning.

Cheers!

2008-02-19T11:53:00.000-06:00

I just bought a scale last month, but I haven't had a good opportunity to use it. I will have to look for that book - it sounds amazing - and this shortbread looks amazing!

2008-02-19T09:30:00.000-06:00

These look so spectacular! I have never tried making shortbread at home, and this would be a wonderful way to start.

2008-02-19T08:24:00.000-06:00

I must confess i use weight measurements too. Cuz cup sizes differ and there are chances of going wrong. Besides American cup measures are not easy to find and i'm so comfortable with the metric system.

The vanilla shortbread sounds so wonderful. I'm sure your hand smelt gr8 all day long, surprised someone did'nt bite them off :P



Oh Mandy, we must have been on the same wavelength...

2008-02-19T08:11:00.000-06:00

Oh Mandy, we must have been on the same wavelength. I just made her carrot cake ...although I made them into cupcakes. I can't wait to try shortbread...they always do taste better after 1 or 2 days , don't they?

2008-02-19T06:24:00.000-06:00

2008-02-19T01:07:00.000-06:00

Hi Mandy,

Wow, you sure do rush to bake again. Looking forward to your try on Red Wine and Chocolate Cake, Green tea Tiramisu, Rich chocolate ganache tart with salted caramel and candied peanuts, Opera and more!

Growl... I get hungry when I think of those.

Sent a mail to you this afternoon. Hope that it reaches you.

Happy Baking & Blogging.

2008-02-18T23:42:00.000-06:00

Wow, that's awesome. I've been searching for that book for a while. I hope you get to make more stuff out of it in the near future.

I would definitely not want to go back to mandatory cup measures. I translate the recipes I use to weight measures, it surely makes everything go by much faster and makes it much easier to double or halve a recipe :)
