Scotch Shortbread

  • Author: Heirloomed Collection
  • Yield: 24 1x


These melt-in-your-mouth cookies are a delicious treat for any time of the year.


  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour


  1. Mix butter and sugar thoroughly. Work in flour with hands, and then chill the dough.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Roll chilled dough to between 1/3 and 1/2 inch thick. Cut into “fancy” shapes – I like to do stars. Flute edges if desired by pinching between fingers.
  4. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake 20 to 25 minutes. Note: the tops of the cookies will not brown during baking. Enjoy!
