fiori di sicilia


I misspent my Saturday making these SanSan inspired butter cookies (butter cookies are my favorite thing).

The Hound and Bird design is courtesy of @ghostrelic and I had it embossed on a rolling pin.

The butter cookie is flavored with an essence called fiori di sicilia (“flowers of Sicily”), a blend of vanila, citrus and floral which is commonly used to scent panettone. I found the essence made me think of Sansa’s perfume which is described in asos as “sweet sharp fragance with a hint of lemon in it under the scent of flowers.”

I sent a couple out to friends who live in N. America along with running/hunting so @coveredincleganedna, @maroucia, @ghostrelic I hope you like them and they survive the journey.
