Shaheen Peerbhai is a freelance photographer, writer and blogger at purplefoodie.com. She is only too happy to be eating, drinking and baking in the name of research, and her current breakfast fixation is orange blossom honey.
Shaheen's favorite cookie recipe is for Fleur de Sel Butter Break-Ups. She was inspired by a recipe by baking legend Dorie Greenspan. Shaheen says on her blog, "when something has butter in its title, it’s going to grab my attention no doubt. Plus the gorgeous criss-cross pattern made me want to run to the kitchen immediately."
