Grandma Hazel Shortbread

 I met Pat MacIntyre at the Highland Games in Pleasanton this year. I joined the clan as my great grandmother was Wright. I would like to share my poem about my grandparents' honeymoon.

Thanks for your consideration,
Mitzi Wortman-Garrett-Wright

My Grandparents Honeymoon

With Wedding clothes still on they mount horses to ride into the woods escaping a Shivaree Party of relations and friends who want to dance, sing and keep the couple up all night away from their honeymoon bed.

On a quilted pine bough bed, cream the mixtures in a full moon nine-inch pie pan.
Pinch the edge to create a fluted Pan edge.
Prick the surface with a fork. The virgin bride becomes a maid.
Bake for 9 months until firm and on St. Patrick's day, a green eyed, fiery tempered, red haired daughter Fern, my mother, is born.
