Chocolate dipped Madeleines of shortbread would be great (but better with chocolate!) Or shortbread served with chocolate squares.

i haven't thought of this in years, but I volunteered at the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum and in the spring, the volunteer program director, who was from England, organized a lovely party to send us off for the summer. We feasted on strawberries stuffed into saddle-shaped cookies and smothered with whipped cream. The cookies were something similar to Florentines--as soon as you take them out of the oven, they are shaped into a U-shape by putting them over a round jar laying on its side. This was accompanied by flutes of champagne and lots of good conversation. This is a tradition that needs to be revived.

What a truly awesome memory!! I would totally revive that. Do you have that specific cookie recipe? We may be a bunch of women playing poker, but I promise we'll honor the Smithsonian memory!

I wish I did have the recipe, but I don't. I made a cookie about 20 years ago that was very similar--very flexible immediately after removing from the oven. I can't find that recipe, but am looking for something similar.

Milano cookies. I know they aren't homemade, but I think they are perfect with fruit. And along the same lines as chocolate dipped madelaines, but a lot less work!

I adore these cookies with fruit or not. Dipped in chocolate or not. Do go to the trouble of finding cultured butter to make them with. I use unsalted Organic Valley.

not sure if you want something to bake with fruit or to serve with fruit but these shortbreads have always turned out delicious

i've made them with all sorts of stone fruit, though it might be a bit early for that
