What makes shortbread different?
Shortbread, also known as shortie is a traditional Scottish cookie. It is made using one part white sugar, two parts butter, and three to four parts plain wheat flour. Due to the higher proportion of butter, and the absence of leavening agents, shortbread turns out to be a tender melt-in-the-mouth baked goodies that’s truly unique and delectable.
Is shortbread very soft?
While shortbread is tender, usually crumbly on the inside, it does have a slight crisp when one bites into it. Shortbread that is baked to perfection and stored well does not have any excess moisture.
