Scottish Shortbread Cookies

Our Scottish shortbread cookie recipe has been handed down from generation to generation in my family.

It all started when my grandfather - the Rev. John Strachan, originally from Peterhead Scotland, was given this recipe for shortbread from a Scottish couple that attended his church many, many years ago. My grandmother than taught my mother how to bake these shortbread cookies when she was a young girl.

The family tradition continued, when as children, my siblings and I would bake these cookies with my Mom for holidays or special occasions. A box of these Scottish shortbread cookies was the perfect gift for friends of the family.

Our shortbread cookies are firm to the touch, yet crumble easily when eaten. Creamy white in color, buttery without an overpowering sweetness - the perfect combination of flavor and texture.

Please enjoy our family tradition that has been handed down from generation to generation.

Original / Mini Chocolate Chip / Chopped Pecan / Lemon / Caraway & Bourbon Glaze / Peanut Butter

We have created a low sugar all natural horse treat. Please check our "Horse Treat" section in the menu line.
