Crème de Framboise Shortbread

Sonia Morin, of Altadena, Calif., created this not-too-sweet shortbread while “toying with the idea of having a French-themed afternoon tea,” she says. If you can’t find crème de framboise, you can substitute any raspberry-infused liqueur to add bright, fruity flavor.
