Jenna started Shortbread about seven years ago as a natural extension of her beloved hobby, baking. As a young woman with special dietary needs (she’s allergic to dairy), she was on a mission to produce great tasting baked goods, using only the best (and the most natural) ingredients but also making them special-diet friendly. Focusing on gluten free, vegan, dairy free, Kosher, or sugar free goods (if needed), Shortbread does a great job of suiting challenging palettes. The best part about Shortbread is the creativity and the care that Jenna pours into each and every treat. “There’s a real power...An energy in the hands,” Jenna says, meaning that the meticulous dedication she puts into each cookie, shortbread, cupcake or what have you really makes a difference in taste.
