SCOTTISH SHORTBREAD


This shortbread recipe is very simple and uses just flour, sugar, butter and a little bit of salt. It's tender, melt in your mouth texture. The shortbread have a wonderful consistency and a very buttery flavor, with just a hint of sweetness that makes them satisfying. .


Scottish Shortbread - Adapted from bakingbites,com
3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter (pref. European-style), chilled

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, sugar and salt. Pulse a few times to blend.
  3. Cut butter into large chunks and add to food processor. Whiz for about 1 minute, until dough has a very sandy and starts to clump together. Pour into a 9-inch square pan and spread into an even layer. Use a flat-bottomed glass to press down the dough firmly, creating as smooth a surface as possible.
  4. Score dough lightly with a knife, marking 4 rows by 8 rows of shortbread pieces. Dock the dough with a fork, if desired.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until shortbread is lightly browned all over.
  6. While the shortbread is still hot, use a sharp knife to cut shortbread all the way through along the lines you scored prior to baking. Allow shortbread to cool completely once it has been cut.
  7. When cool, shortbread pieces should break apart very easily. Store in an airtight container.
  8. Makes 32 pieces.
