Why I Love This Recipe

Many thanks to Paulette Kaleikau, who baked and photographed on the 4th of July weekend. Paulette’s comments: “Your mother’s shortbread with a little 4th of July zing. Reminded me of Chinese sponge cake. Thumbs up from both Craig & I.”

Slowly add sugar and beat 2-½ minutes with mixer, or 5 minutes by hand.
