For those of you that watched the 2011 season of "The Apprentice" in the UK you might remember "the emergency biscuit" that was talked about in one of the episodes. If not, don't worry. The point here isn't to talk about "The Apprentice" but rather to embrace a food solution to all your social emergencies. I have discovered the real emergency biscuit. Now, it does depend on the emergency, but assuming that it's not life threatening (a biscuit wouldbe of little help then...), there are many situations where a quick recipe would save you. Let's say a surprise visit from the in-laws or a sudden craving for something sweet when the fridge and freezer is empty. So what is this solution? Shortbread! Super easy and fast to make and the 3 ingredients should be found in almost any household, so next time your dorbell rings and you know you have nothing to offer, make these shortbreads!
