Shortbread cookies aren’t just for coffee, tea and milk. This New Year’s Eve, I plan on toasting the new year with shortbread cookies and champagne. I’m keeping it simple, and my dainty ShortBits and sparkling white wine are a perfect combination for entertaining.
Are you looking for a great ”small gathering” idea? How about a “cookie exchange party” or a “wine and dessert tasting party”? Try serving shortbread cookies with your favorite sparkling wine or champagne.
“Shortbread is a good match for a sparkling wine or blanc de blanc Champagne” (BrandonSun.com) .
“A dry champagne cuts through the rich, buttery flavor of the cookie” (SeattleTimes.com).
Shortbread and Champagne is a delectable delight (not too sweet, not too dry). I’m looking forward to sipping champagne and nibbling on ShortbreadSwee-T’s ShortBits while sitting by the fire with friends and family.
