  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
How to make Scotch Shortbread:
  • Take a bowl and whisk butter and sugar in it, to make a light and fluffy cream.
  • Add 2½ cups of the flour to the above mixture and knead to form dough. Work on it until it starts to crackle on the surface.
  • Flour a surface with the remaining ½ cup flour. Now, roll out the dough in a circle that is ¼-inch thick and then cut it into cookie shapes, using a cutter.
  • Prick cookies with fork tines and place them on un-greased cookie sheets.
  • Now, bake them at 275 degrees, for about 45 to 55 minutes, making sure that they are lightly browned.
  • Cool slightly and then serve.
