Cherry Crisp Shortbread

This Cherry Crisp Shortbread is my go-to summer treat as cherries are easily available around April/May. You'll definitely find almost everything in your kitchen and I doubt you'll be scampering around for ingredients.

The Cherries lend the sweetness and tartness, Oats give you that crisp bite and overall it's best described as a cross between a Shortbread cookie and 'dryish' cake. So if you're expecting it to be moist, no not this one. This is ideally paired and best complemented with a cherry sauce or ice cream. You've got to see this red beauty.

Cherry Crisp Shortbread, your perfect summer dessert.
