Why did I think of that you are asking? You might remember when I first starting talking about flavoured shortbread about 18 months ago – wow I can’t believe how fast the last 18 months have gone – I had just come back from a trip to Hawaii.

Apart from coffee, it turned out that Hawaii was also famous for flavoured shortbread – including papaya, pineapple and coffee (separately I hasten to add!!) They had so many shops filled of different flavoured shortbread to buy, and in the most awesome gift boxes including an amazing shaped a pineapple and a hibiscus.

I don’t have these gift boxes but at the time it did occur to me what an awesome present a variety box of incredible shortbread would make.

I promised myself, and I believe in my first shortbread post you, that on my return I would try to replicate as many flavours as I could. And so I started – Lemon and Coconut, Chocolate Dipped Hawaiian Macadamia Nut and Coconut Shortbread (whilst in Hawaii was the first time I saw macadamia nut growing on trees!!!) – there were just sooooooooooooooooo many flavour to try.

With coffee being so big in Hawaii and having visited a coffee plantation whilst there of course it was a must! (Plus I knew it would be a favourite with my Dad!!! ;) )
