Rich, buttery shortbread is a favorite sweet treat during the Christmas season with Scottish roots. By preparing your holiday shortbread in a large round, cut into neat wedges, you’ll spare yourself the time and hassle of shaping individual cookies, and gain a lovely way to present your shortbread on the holiday dessert table.
Don’t skimp on the quality of butter when making shortbread. Because it’s the superstar ingredient, you’ll want to use a variety with superior flavor. We like the rich creamy European butter varieties.
Why not brew a pot of tea and settle before the fire with a hot cuppa and a few shortbread petticoat tails for a warming, delicious treat?
