Clementine Posset & Cinnamon Shortbread

A winter take on a favourite summer dessert

Clementine Posset & Cinnamon ShortbreadSo, as desserts go, this is one which holds much merriment in my family and therefore Clementine Posset is perfect for our New Year’s Eve reflection. As far back as my mum ordering lemon posset as the Shepherd’s Rest in Todmorden- one of our favourite places for Sunday dinners when my parents visited, it results in so much laughter and happy memories.
And so to the Christmas season, celebrating favourite memories with winter inspired ingredients.

    I must make the cinnamon shortbread for hubby as he loves both cinnamon and shortbread (earn myself some brownie points).
