I know i’ve said this countless times but i doubt if i’d ever get tired of saying baking is one of my major hobbies. Apart from cakes, i love making biscuits too. One of my favorite biscuits is the scottish shortbread. It tastes so good yet so easy to make at home. The ingredients for this all butter biscuit is simply basic but the end result is one you wouldn’t forget in a hurry.
For most of my home baking, i use mostly butter which could be quite expensive although worth every penny but when butter is not available i end up using margarine which doesn’t give me the desired flavor and taste i need.
Today i’d be showing you how to make the ORIGINAL shortbread biscuit which would make you wonder why you’ve been spending lots of Naira on the store bought ones. Most times, i make shortbread for Christmas, birthdays or special occasions as gifts and the compliments seem to pour in endlessly. For the rice flour, i milled ordinary raw rice till smooth. Please do not use margarine for this as the results are totally different. Also, do not add anything extra such as flavorings if you want the real shortbread taste you’ve grown to love. if you don’t have an oven to bake this in, use this Method
