So yeah, the hurricane came.
We are safe, but have no power…

Living like a pioneer or an Amish person doesn’t jive with my inner 21 Century self, I have discovered.
And my kid asked me, as we sat in the dark at 7:30 pm last night, if this is what is was like in the 1980′s.
So, maybe I should get out a few history books while we have no tv or internet to keep us occupied…
Luckily, though, I made this Pumpkin Shortbread last week.

Maybe Pioneer-y circa 1982.

Spread it in a greased tart pan…I used my off-set spatula to help me smooth it nicely.
And just bake it up, for about an hour or so…
And I highly suggest you pour glaze all over the top.
You really should.
Let the glaze drip over the edges and set up…
And slice it into wedges.
