So my mom makes the best shortbread ever thanks to Ina Garten, the BareFoot Contessa, and thankfully she's passed that talent on to me. If you don't believe me you can ask some seven and eight year olds I know about
Mrs. Lepp's shortbread hearts. I'm not mentioning any names here as said seven and eight year olds may or may not have been former students. Anyway, in a pinch, Kelley's Kookies are pretty darn good and you don't have to stand in the kitchen
whipping them up. Run on down to Gelson's and pick up a bag for $6.99. The story with Kelley's is that the cookies are made by hand from scratch using high quality ingredients like Guittard chocolate, grade AA butter, pure cane sugar, and fresh eggs in every
batch. Since 1988 the handcrafted cookies began selling in Cypress, Ca. With over 25 varieties, including chocolate dipped (dark, milk, or white) Caramel Sea Salt, Lemon, Pecan, Plain, Triple Chocolate Delight, and many others; you'll never run short on shortbread!
In addition, Kelley's makes Chocolate Chip Krispy Oatmeal Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies, and Sugar Cookies. Available at select Gelson's or Kelleyskookies.com.
