    C & D's Mommy's Note:

    The real thing. I'm a part French, Canadian born girl. I married a Scottish guy. I made this recipe BEFORE I met him!! But if I serve it to my MIL, she just loves it! There is also a "Royal Shortbread" that I make and I will post it another time. It's the same thing with carmel sauce on top then drizzled with melted chocolate. (I think I might go make some now......) There are many ways to make these cookies. The direction I will put down will be the easiest, but you can also roll out the dough and make shapes with cookie cutters, or if you have a terra cotta shortbread pan, the dough can be pressed into that. (These might be available at any kitchen store, not sure, I got mine as a gift. Thanks MIL!!)

      Glad to have found this delicious crumbly shortbresd. I am sure that my Gran used to make the same recipe, the only difference being that she kneaded the dough for a few minutes on a flat surface. Making Scottish Shortbread is an art, and this recipe is really worth holding on to. I sprinkled my freshly-baked shortbread with a little caster sugar, and in Scotland when we make this for Christmas visitors, we normally dust it lightly with powdery icing sugar, to look like snow!! Thanks for sharing this authentic Scottish recipe!!
