One batch (about 12 largish cookies) rose biscuits.

These are large shortbreadish heart-shaped butter cookies that look like chocolate chip shortbread only the 'chips' are bright pink because they are candied rose petals! (in fact, I adapted this from such a recipe).

They will be made with butter, cane sugar, Better Batter gluten-free flour, rosewater, madagascar vanilla and India Tree candied rose petals. I do not really feel comfortable working with margarine in this particular recipe, sorry. The GF flour contains rice flours, potato starch, xanthan gum. I cannot work with regular flour because I have celiac.

Starting Bid: 5 GBP

I will mail US priority mail from California to anywhere that US priority mail goes, but please check your country's laws regarding importation of foodstuffs if you are outside North America. They are hard cookies, not soft in the centre, and should be ok to mail priority mail.

Preferred Donations: I am OK with Japanese Red Cross, Oxfam, Shelterbox, &c. I am absolutely not OK with Salvation Army or any other anti-queer Christian missionary organisation that has been known to separate partners/families who come to them for help or refuse aid to people who are not willing to be proselytised at.

7! I love shortbread and I'm curious how the candied rose petals add to it.
