A gift for my Scottish Grandma!
I had several people try this and LOVE it! It has great texture and flavor.
I made bars for my Grandma...it makes ALOT!
I have since found a shortbread pan, and the recipe was the same (I got 2 out of it), but I had to adjust the cooking time a bit. I baked it according to the instructions on my shortbread pan box. 325 degrees for 30 mins, then I did an additional 15-20...I would do 10, check it and then see if you think it should be another 5-10? I just pushed on it a little and saw it was a little soft in the middle still.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Cream butter and sugar with mixer. Add flour and mix with a wooden spoon. Use hands to thoroughly mix.
Press into a jelly roll pan. Prick to bottom all over with a fork being sure the fork hits the bottom and the pricks are close together.
ake for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 300 and continue to bake for 40 minutes more. Wait 2 minutes then cut into finger size bars. Cool thoroughly in pan.
I put the bars into a cellophane bag and tied it with a ribbon.
