Heritage Lemon Shortbread

18 piece box - South Carolina

Shortbread of South Carolina

A higher ratio of fat to gluten = short

Think sugar, butter, flour, pinch of salt combined.

Biscuit bread in Mediaeval times in Scotland started with leftover bread dough, baked in a low temperature oven until it dried out into a rusk. Biscuit = rusk = twice baked.

Leftovers of dough made way to the first published recipe for short-bread (in the 1700’s?) yeast was replaced with butter into the “same” shortbread recipe we eat today.

The word “same” is used loosely. Though, the recipe is “easy” on paper, great results are not. Heritage Shortbread is an excellent representation of what you want in a “short” bread.

It's crispy, crumbly, and tasty, every time you bite into each biscuit. Not too hard and with just the right feel, they are the best short-bread we have had in a long, long time! It is much more difficult to find a shortbread that makes people say, "That's good!" than you might think. Well, so far, both in the store and in the warehouse, everyone has said, "That's great!"

It doesn't get much better than that! A classic holiday hostess gift in the Scottish/English speaking world.

Enriched flour, pasteurized cream (milk), sugar, salt, pure lemon oil

I am a big fan of shortbread. My husband often buys this for me as a present at Christmas but I decided not to wait for the holidays again. All brands of Heritage shortbread are buttery and well worth the price.
