Scottish Short Bread


1 pound room temp butter (4 sticks)

4 ½ cups flour

1 cup caster/superfine sugar (not powdered)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Mix in flour. (alternatively, you can combine everything in a food processor and pulse until it’s thoroughly combined). Roll dough to ¼ inch-thick on a cookie sheet. Pre-cut into desired square size and poke holes in each piece with a fork. This recipe can also be pressed into decorative shortbread molds (as pictured). Bake for 20-35 minutes or until light golden brown. Enjoy!

Recipe Note: If you cannot find store-bought caster/superfine sugar, you can make your own. Just pulse granulated sugar in a blender until fine (not powdered).
