Meg Morton’s Scottish Shortbread

Every Christmas when I was growing up my Mum- Meg Morton, would make batch upon batch of simply delicious shortbread to give to neighbours, family and friends. Each little gift was wrapped in grease proof paper and ribbon. My Mum who our design business is named after, sadly died when I was young. She was an inspirational home maker as well as an expert cookery and sewing teacher and luckily I have inherited all of her wonderful Scottish family recipes, including the one for this delicious shortbread! It makes the lightest, melt in the mouth shortbread I have ever tasted and is absolutely delicious so Vix and I thought we would share It with you. Perhaps you will be able to make it for family and friends too and carry on the gifting tradition.

Meg Morton's Scottish Shortbread Recipe:

1.5 oz cornflour

1.5oz semolina

4.5 oz Plain flour

4oz butter

2oz caster sugar 

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Mix together the rest of the dry ingredients and gradually work in until you have a dough.

Press into a greased medium sized square baking tin or roll and cut into festive shapes.

Cook at 160 degrees for 15- 20 mins accordingly or until lightly golden. Allow to cool and dust with caster sugar.


Best Wishes
