Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 8 tbsp - vegan butter, like Earth Balance
  • 2 tbsp - trans fat-free vegetable shortening
  • 1.25 cup - confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 2 tbsp - sugar
  • 1/4 tsp - salt

How to Make Scottish Shortbread

  • Beat sugar, salt, vegan butter and shortening on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Sift in the flour gradually into the butter-shortening mixture, mixing with a spatula. Stir together with the spatula until the dough comes together. If needed, sprinkle a few drops of ice-cold water so the dough holds together.
  • Grease an 8 X 8-inch baking dish.
  • Put the shortbread dough in it and press with your fingers into a smooth, even layer.
  • Using a fork, pierce holes into the shortbread dough in a decorative pattern.
  • Bake in a 300-degree oven for 45-50 minutes until the shortbread is pale golden in colour and slightly dark at the edges.
  • Remove to a rack and let it cool until it's slightly warm. With a sharp knife, cut almost all the way through to form squares. At this point you can sprinkle the shortbread with 1-2 tsp sugar.
  • When completely cooled, break into bars and devour!
