Scottish Shortbread and some yummy embellishments. :)

Traditional Scottish Shortbread

This recipe is soooo easy and makes a great tea time treat or late night dessert. I found the original recipe here.

1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter

This is how I do it, melt butter and mix well with sugar and flour, press in a parchment lined 8 x 8 baking dish.  Sprinkle the top with granulated sugar.

To make it fun for the kids, okay it's really for me, I like to sprinkle chocolate chips on the top, this part is probably not traditional. :)

Bake @ 300 for 30 mintutes, Remove and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.  Cut, cool, and eat. :)
