Solstice Goodies

We made meyer lemon curd (pictured above with a scone from the Bake Shop), honey sea-salt caramels, and Pecorino-black pepper-rosemary shortbread. It was slightly disastrous-- the curd turned out fine on the first try-- the cans even magically sealed-- but the caramels didn't set overnight, so we had to reheat them to try to get them up to the "hard ball" stage, and then we burned the whole batch and had to start from scratch; the shortbread recipe was seriously faulty, and we had to keep adding butter until it held together as a batter. In the end, everything was delicious, but Katie & I are not bakers or candymakers. End of story. Next year for Christmas, we'll just make people dinner.
