Scottish Shortbread Love

In the realm of all thangs cookie-like, shortbread is my fav. I could eat shortbread, in any form, every day. NomNomNom.

While Garry prefers traditional shortbread, I also enjoy this Dark Chocolate Shortbread, which I think makes an excellent gift.

As is my habit of finding all things delicious to share here, I stumbled upon a recipe for Shortbread that I had hastily scribbled on a note card years ago, yet never made. I have no idea to whom to attribute.

Life gets in the way of baking sometimes.

BUT NOT TODAY!

To the recipe!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SHORTBREAD

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup butter, softened.

Preheat over to 300°.

Mix flour, sugar and salt. Knead butter into the mix and press firmly into an 8 inch pie plate or a shortbread mold.

Bake 1 hour.

The shortbread should be pale in color, not browned.

Cut into wedges while still warm.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NomNomNom all the shortbread. DO IT!

Bake. Score (like this):

Shortbread

Cool completely, then cut (sure, sure, go ahead and have a bite while you’re at it):

Seriously, how easy is that recipe? This deliciousness also qualifies as an excellent gift.

For those of you pressed for time, yet want to give as a gift, you can package the dry ingredients in a fun container and include the recipe (just add butter!) and a beautiful shortbread mold. VIOLA! A unique and thoughtful gift for any baker.

I’ve included a few mold choices below to get your creative juices flowing!
