Simple shortbread makes a good tea-time snack or a great treat to pop in the children’s pockets for school. It’s also an excellent accompaniment to desserts like fools, possets, ice cream or cranachan — that simple Scottish pudding of raspberries, lightly toasted oats, sugar, whipped cream and whisky. To vary your shortbread, try adding a few chopped nuts to the mix or even some chopped pieces of dark chocolate.
