I've got a fantastic Scottish shortbread recipe for you! I tried it last weekend, and the buttery, crumbly texture was absolutely perfect. It’s surprisingly simple to make and a great treat to enjoy with a cup of tea.

Ingredients:​

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • A pinch of salt

Instructions:​

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until it's light and fluffy.
  3. Gradually add the flour and salt, mixing until the dough comes together. It will be a bit crumbly, but that’s okay!
  4. Press the dough into a 9x9-inch baking pan, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon or your fingers.
  5. Use a fork to prick the dough all over. This helps it bake evenly.
  6. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  7. Let it cool in the pan for a few minutes, then cut it into squares or fingers while it’s still warm.
And that's it! These shortbread cookies are so simple, but they have a rich, buttery flavor that’s irresistible. Enjoy them with a cup of tea or coffee, and I promise you'll be hooked. 🫖🍪

I think using a high-quality butter is key for that rich flavor, though it might be a bit more indulgent! 🧈🍪
