After the disaster that was Myrna Loy’s Shortbread I wasn’t sure about entering this category for the MHHSSS (see previous post) but I spotted this recipe in The Treasury of Great Recipes and it sounded good. And good it certainly was.
I did everything exactly to Vincent’s recipe which I am posting below, except for one thing. After consulting with Queen of Baking Battenburg Belle, I cooked them at a lower temperature for a shorter time than Vincent suggested. The test batch I made were a little overdone colourwise. When I find the scribbled note I made of exactly how long I baked them for I will add it in. For now though, here is a prize winning recipe for Scotch Shortbread courtesy of Vincent’s wife Mary’s sister Clay…
For non-American cooks, confectioners sugar is also known as icing sugar.
Another winner from Vincent’s copious recipe stash!
