Banana-Walnut Shortbread...by Juli
The healthy organic-ness of my cookbook has left us somewhat disappointed when it comes to desserts. Ok, I admit it, I am a dessert snob. Working as a pastry assistant has lead me to believe that its ok to labor for hours with the richest ingredients for a superb dessert. So I braved "Early Spring" and was pleasantly surprised with it's yummy-ness (am I adding ness to every word or what?!?!) I came in with a good attitude from the very beginning when I bought my whole wheat pastry flour. You see the company RED MILL is owned by this sweet old man named Bob and I just watched this story on Yahoo that said that he just gave his company to all his employees....what an awesome boss!
Ok, back to the shortbread.....It was good! I think it would be good with some coffee or tea, but I paired it with the yummy-est non-dairy chocolate ice cream. Wipe that look off your face and give it a try! It's called Purely Decadent and it is the BEST! Kit likes it...and if you know him he has very high ice cream standards!
