Scotch Shortbread

Rating: Unrated
My best friend in high school's mom made this for me when I had my first overnight stay in a hospital. I loved it so much that I made it whenever I got the chance. When we lived overseas, my mom had to limit the number of times I could make it because butter was so expensive. Now it's part of my Christmas baking. Very rich and good!

My mother is from Scotland and this is her authentic Scottish shortbread recipe. It makes bars, not cookies!

Margie's Shortbread Oatmeal Cookies

This is our family recipe for shortbread oatmeal cookies, handed down through the Scottish side of the family. There is nothing better. They are definitely not low in fat.

Light, very buttery. Does not make a large batch, but are simple enough to make many batches. Recipe does not double well.

These are a traditional Scottish cookie-very spicy and not too sweet. They are a treat for the grown-ups, too. Wonderful with a nice mug of tea. Yum!
