  • About

Buttery, rich shortbread is one of the delights of the biscuit world. Of Scottish origin, shortbread is traditionally baked in a shallow tin and becomes crisp as it cools. Its texture has that melt-in-the-mouth feeling, made possible by the amount of butter in the mixture. Keep the biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days only - they are best eaten fresh.
