This Scottish Shortbread Recipe (no, it’s not Scotch as some like to say) is soooo easy!!! I was skeptical when made them yesterday, as they seemed to good to be true, but they are so tasty, and so easy! I swear, I think my 3-year-old could make these himself if only he could read! 😀

Truly decadent and buttery, these melt-in-your-mouth cookies are sure to be a crowd pleaser this Christmas! I took them to a church gathering yesterday, and they were gone quickly!

Scottish Shortbread

1 Cup White Sugar

1 tsp. water

1 Pound Butter, softened

4 Cups White All-Purpose Flour

1/2 tsp. Salt

Put sugar in bowl, and sprinkle with the teaspoon of water. Cream in butter until well blended. Add flour and salt, and mix in until the mixture is crumbly. Press into a 9X13 ungreased cake pan, and poke holes about every inch or so. Bake in a 275 degrees oven for 1 hour, until top edges are a light golden colour. Cut into squares with a pizza cutter. Yum!
