    I have been making these melt-in-your mouth shortbread cookies for over 40 years. The are so easy and simple to make. Instead of the cherries, you can use sprinkles, half an almond or half a cashew on top of cookies before baking. A thumbprint in the cookie, filled with your choice of jam is also very tasty!

    Traditional family favourite. You can use biscuit cutter cut into shapes of your choice and have it plain or dust them with sifted icing sugar to coat.

    Great tasting shortbread without wheat flour and egg. For best results, refrigerate dough for one hour.

    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.

    Baking with the kids at Christmas is wonderful; we always make these shortbread biscuits, each picking our favourite cutter shape.
