Enjoy Scotland’s favorite treat on national Shortbread Day – observed each year on January 6th. What a wonderful excuse to enjoy a couple of shortbread cookies.
Good shortbread is buttery, crunchy, melt in your mouth delicious. It goes perfectly with a nice hot cup of tea, a glass of cold milk or, if you really want to have the full Scottish experience, a shot of strong Scotch whiskey.
The classic recipe is easy enough:
- 1 part sugar
- 2 parts butter
- 3 parts flour
- a dash or two of salt.
That’s it. Simple, wholesome, yummy cookies.
Attractive enough to serve on a pretty plate for guests. Tasty enough for them to come back for more!
Happy National Shortbread Day!
