As I was born in Scotland, great shortbread has always been a Christmas tradition in our family. A few years ago I started to experiment with my great grandmother's recipe, to make it quicker and easier to make. I successfully managed to change the ingredients and the method to make it tastier and fast to make. It's now a family tradition (and expectation) that ALL our family members receive a small gift box of my shortbread at Christmas.

With its two key ingredients - rum and butter - this Christmas cake recipe is a hit. It is less dense than your standard Christmas cake recipe - and a little more rum-soaked! If you can let the cake sit for the full 10 weeks - it is really worth it. It is delicious by itself, or covered with a layer of marzipan and icing.
