MaD Cooking Show S1E3 Shortbread



This recipe comes from Joel's family and is called Scotch Shortbread. When he was younger, Joel would use half shortening and half butter as opposed to all butter as we've done in the video today.

Scotch Shortbread recipe

1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

Mix together ingredients. Roll out and cut into cookies or press dough into 8x8 pan. Bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit on non greased cookie sheet for 20-25 minutes. May be decorated using springler cookie presses.

As stated in the video, when we used the shortbread pan, we increased the temperature to 330 and cooked for closer to 30 minutes. Keep an eye on it as you cook, you're looking for a golden brown color.

  1. Yum. I agree that rosemary would be a great addition; it nicely flavors my favorite biscotti. Love that the whole family (minus one kitty?) got in on the act this time. Thanks for sharing!
