August’s Baking Challenge Recipe is Shortbread Cookies. These cookies are rich and buttery with a melt-in-your-mouth texture. They are truly delicious! Make this recipe your own by adding citrus zest or dipping in chocolate.
Alternative Baking Challenge: Prefer a different recipe? Not a problem. Since this challenge is still new, you can choose any other recipe from Windy City Baker. There are lots of recipes of different difficulty levels. You will still be qualified to win the prizes if you follow challenge requirements (i.e., taking a photo and sending it to me in an email).
