Scottish Shortbread Mix...Jar Recipe For Gifts!
We love shortbread and this recipe never fails to bring a smile. I will sometimes bake this in a square pan and cut into squares, or even cut in rounds with a cookie cutter and bake. No matter the shape, it's delicious and perfect for teatime!
It's great to have these jars on hand in your pantry for yourself or when company drops in, or you can present this as a gift to friends and family this season. Start now and you can have wonderful homemade gift baskets ready by the holidays.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients, blending well. Store in an airtight container or jar if giving as a gift.
Attach to the jar:
Makes approx. 16 pieces
1 cup butter, softened
1 jar Scottish Shortbread Mix
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Knead the butter into the shortbread mix and press the mixture firmly into an 8-inch pie plate, or shortbread mold. Bake for 1 hour. The shortbread should be pale in color, not browned. Cut into wedges or squares while still warm.
You need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it. A village means that you are not alone, knowing that in the people, the trees, the earth, there is something that belongs to you, waiting for you when you are not there. ~Casare Pavese

My Sexton's Hail From Limerick
Never permit yourself to become the weak link in the chain of your generations.
Welcome! Please pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in and relax with me awhile. As you'll notice, I am captivated by ancient times, a soul misplaced in this modern day. I have a love for my ancestry and I believe people who grow up without a sense of how yesterday has affected today, are unlikely to have a strong sense of how today affects tomorrow.
