Jillian Simms, a former pastry chef at fine dining restaurants, now ships her handmade treats anywhere in the US from quaint Deep River, Connecticut. While using local honey, dairy and eggs for all of her recipes. The Gráinne Brown Sugar Shortbread Buttons are perfect because they are not only delicious, but also come in a down home muslin bag.
BAKING IS LOVE
While the flavor of pure creamery butter shines through in each melt-in-your-mouth bite of these tiny treats. Because it was inspired by traditional Irish shortbread, they contain just four ingredients: creamery butter, wheat flour, brown sugar, salts. Four ounces come packaged in a reusable muslin bag perfect for gift giving. Homemade granola, granola bars, brown sugar shortbread, sea salt chocolate chunk cookies and brownies to die for. Handmade classic treats using only the best ingredients–including Connecticut honey, eggs, and dairy. With no additives, preservatives, or distractions.
THE IRISH CONNECTION
Gráinne (pronounced GRAWN-yuh) a figure from ancient Celtic folklore thought to be a personification of the harvest. Her name translates as Grace. Because it implies effortless charm, virtue, and thoughtful consideration of actions and words. While her association with the harvest also ties in with her commitment to natural ingredients.
Her family came to the US from Counties Cork and Kilkenny in the middle of the 20th century. The Gráinne Brown Sugar Shortbread Buttons inspired by Irish treats, are a delicious sweet treat for anyone. My entire family loves these. Great for the holidays or to sneak into someone’s stocking. While others are simply Irish in spirit: soulful, humble, passionate, and playful. Using only the best ingredients–including Connecticut honey, eggs, and dairy–my goal is to bring forward real, natural food with no additives, preservatives, or distractions.
