A Scottish creation, Shortbread is a dessert we can all adopt as our own. These easy shortbread cookies are something my grandmother used to always make during the Christmas holiday and that's a tradition that I have continued with my own kids. Scottish shortbread cookies are really almost half biscuit half cookie...they have a biscotti like quality and go great with coffee or tea. They're the perfect crumbly combination of slow-baked flour, butter, and sugar. And you don't want to miss out!
