Why I Love This Recipe

Not sure where mom got this recipe or the name, but these sure are good!

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups all purpose flour
¾ cups granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup softened butter
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten with a fork.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
confectioners’ sugar


Mix dry ingredients (except confectioners’ sugar) in mixing bowl.

Add butter, egg yolk, and vanilla.

Mix with fingers until dough holds together.

Divide dough into 2 parts.

With floured palms, roll each part into a ball.

Press each ball into a 8 to 9 inch pie pan.

Flatten evenly with palms.

Crimp edges as for a pie crust, or cut slashes in edges at 2 inch intervals with a floured knife.

Prick the surface with a floured fork.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cut into 8 wedges per pie pan (16 total).

Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.

Do not remove from pie pans until completely cool.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

We got an email about this recipe... mystery solved! Here's what the note said... "I noticed a recipe called "Pride O' Scotland Shortbread Wedges". The contributor said he did not know where his mom got it. I know, because I have the same exact recipe. It was in an old Woman's Day Christmas cookie mini-book. They used to print a pull-out cookie booklet every Christmas. Mystery solved!"
