Scotch Shortbread I
Reviews:
May 18, 2009

I've been making this recipe for years. It's my favorite shortbread cookie. I will use salted butter if they need to stand by themselves, but I almost always top them with something. Mmm, try lemon curd, it's lovely. I like to roll them out thick, as much as 3/8", to simulate those beautiful, artificial storebought cookies that my kids beg for. This is a delicious, understated cookie that pairs well with anything. I'm not completely sure, but I think that the rice flour adds delicacy to the cookie. I have made them with 2 1/3 c wheat flour and they don't seem quite as tender.
