Shortbread is a type of Scottish cookie made from butter, sugar, and flour. The large amount of butter creates a delicate and crumbly texture. Chad isn’t a big fan of shortbread. He says they are too crumbly, but that makes them perfect to me.
These are incredibly easy cookies to make. Just form the dough and press into the prepared baking dish. No rolling or intricate decoration required. You can use the fork to decorate the top of the shortbread, but I was in a rush for this photographed batch and just pierced all over.
