Scottish Shortbread

Prep Time:

15 Minutes

Cook Time:

25 Minutes


10 Servings




  • 2 cups of all purpose flour

  • 0.5 cup of granulated sugar

  • 280 g of butter (1 pack and 2 tablespoons)


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 190°C (375° F).

Combine all the ingredients together. The butter should not be too soft, but should also not be straight from the refrigerator.

Step 2

Do not overwork the dough. Mix by hand or mixer until the dough stiffens, and the consistency does not fully crumble.

Step 3

Add butter or spray to the baking sheet. Place the dough on a baking sheet maintaining about 3 cms (1 inch) of thickness. Sprinkle granulated sugar on top.

Step 4

Bake in the oven until the edges lightly brown (25-30 minutes).
