Shortbread’s a Scots thing. Good with tea in the afternoon or a wee dram late at night.

It’s also the favorite cookie of Suzy, hence the name Suzy’s Lemon-Almond Shortbread Bars, in honor of my dear friend of nearly forty years. Suzy is not a happy baker, and every few years will declare she’s never baking again. She is, however, a top-drawer cook and a gelato-maker par excellence, and has always loved to entertain. An invitation to dinner at Suzy’s is a precious thing and much coveted in her circle of friends.
