Hello to all the bakers on this list!

I am experimenting with adding flavors to short bread and have a quandry that a more experienced baker (and dessert eater) may know the answer to.

I would like to add saffron to the short bread but I am wondering how to incorporate it, since saffron needs to bloom in hot liquid. But there is no liquid, hot or otherwise, in short bread. I've thought about blooming it in a very small amount of hot water and adding it in, or else melting a little bit of the butter and adding it that way. But I don't know what these methods might do to the finished product and I don't want to waste my expensive saffron if I don't need to.

What to you think?
