SCOTISH SHORTBREAD

 

  • Cooking Time: 12
  • Servings: 20
  • Preparation Time: 10

Ingredients

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 100 g soft butter
  • 100 g Ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/3 cup macadamia (or other nuts), broken into small pieces
  • a bit of vanilla extract (or lemon zest)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 150-160*C.
  • Make a smooth dough out of all ingredients (use food processor or knead by hand).
  • Take out shapes (dough is very brittle!), or press the dough into a tin, cut it and prick with fork (see picture on:
  • http://jasnaskitchencreations.blogspot.com/2010/06/shortbread.html )
  • Bake 10-12 minutes - shortbread needs to stay pale.
  • For best results use best ingredients.
  • Keep in a cool and dry place for a month.

Notes

I have tried many recipes for Scotish Shortbread. I also experimented with ingredients by my own; I wanted to archieve that authentic 'buttery' smell and taste. This is what I came up with.
