Scottish Shortbread Cookies

Due to a family situation, Black Mountain Cookie Company, will TEMPORARILY be closed and not taking orders.

We apologize for this inconvenience and will reopen at a later date.

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

The perfect comfort food that goes great with a cup of tea! Black Mountain Cookies, made from home, made with love! "

Lois S. - "OMG I love the peanut butter shortbreads. Delicate peanut butter flavor that is so very delicious !!"

Pam S. - OMG !!! what a sweet surprise! Another home run. No joke. I like peanut butter cookies, but these are 10X better because they are so mild and more importantly, not dry which PB cookies usually are...."

Sue E. - All my life I have been a cookie person. I bought a bag of your cookies when i was in AZ Cave Creek last month. I love shortbread cookies. Yours are the BEST i ever have tasted. And at 71, I have had my share of cookies. I allow myself only 2 a day. Sometimes at night, I may eat a third with lots of guilt....

Tina Z. - While my husband and I were visiting Seattle, Washington, he developed a fondness for the shortbread cookies there. Back in our home state of Arizona, I embarked on a quest to find the best shortbread cookies available. A quick online search led me to the Black Mountain Cookie Company. After reading their story, and fabulous reviews I placed an order, and when the cookies arrived, my husband declared them the most delicious shortbread cookies he'd ever tasted. They were incredibly thick and packed with flavor, a true delight. These cookies have now become his go-to midnight snack, perfectly complementing a glass of milk. I attribute the exceptional quality of these shortbread cookies to the personal attention an care provided by Ron at Black Mountain Cookie Company. I have ordered several times and this time I received a text saying they just finished baking my cookies and hand-delivered since we live fairly close by.
