352/365/Happy Free-for-All

I believe that shortbread is nature’s perfect food, and it turns out that my co-worker, Sam, is one of the best shortbread bakers in the world. Our begging resulted in her baking two for another co-worker’s birthday: one topped with some crushed peppermint, the other with a layer of Ghiradelli peppermint bark baked into a middle layer. I worried that these flavors might detract from the perfection of her shortbread, but reader, they did not.
