Hello everyone, I thought I would share a traditional baking recipe for Scottish Shortbread. I love baking but used to spend most of my time either making bigger cakes or desserts like cheesecakes and banoffee pie. I’ve been spending a bit more time recently developing some biscuit and cookie recipes. As I’m Scottish i thought I would take the time to share a traditional Scottish Shortbread recipe.
You can also use a cookie cutter of your choice to stamp out shapes from the shortbread dough and cook them as individual biscuits. Extras like chocolate chips or lemon zest can also be added to the dough when you in the other dry ingredients.
