today i was surfing the net around for food and i bumped into a shortbread recipe involving non-dairy butter. now wait a second.. unless you meant non-diarrhee, which i totally understand, if it's non-dairy it's not butter. period.
said that, either you're a poor soul who is intolerant to lactose so i truly feel for you and understand your try.. or i dont really get the point of wanting to eat shortbread, out of all the cookies in the world, without using real butter. it's like making crepes without using actual egg.
i'm not a fat cooking maniac, but when i lived in finland i used to be bewildered in front of the tons of weird margarines piled up in the supermarket fridge. that's crap more than butter, if you dont want to use dairy fat just stick to oils for food's sake.

its perfume is so nice, isnt it.. it almost doesnt need any spice nor herbs. usually i complete the dish with a pinch of freshly ground mix of black and white pepper and a little coriander.
among all the various teas i drink everyday like there's no tomorrow, i usually drink a (generous) cup of genmaicha after dinner.. for some reason i find it an awesome way to top my meal, with that grassy yet slighty salty roasted rice aroma :)
