TRADITIONAL SCOTTISH SHORTBREAD
With there being so many recipes on the internet that are not authentic Scottish shortbread recipes, it has been so nice to see how well these have been received. And my other varieties have been received well too. Here is some photos and feedback.
Facebook group member Alison and her family loved the shortbread recipe & she earned her ‘Scottish Stripes’ from using this recipe. Her family are apparently still raving about it. “The instructions were super easy to follow and they were easy to make”.
Maureen has to use Spelt flour and goats butter, but she successfully makes several of my recipes, using different ingredients. So Maureen confirms how well the recipe works with this particular change of flour and butter. Having made them several times, Maureen had this to say –
Before we became good friends, Diana was always trying my recipes, and one of her family’s favourites, is my shortbread.
Here is a collage of her Scottish Shortbread pics, including with chocolate chips added.

Fellow food writer Sally, tried my shortbread, and added her own special touch, that had to involve sprinkles 😉 I think they look great Sally. For 11 years of recipes, check out Sally’s website – got to Bewitching Kitchen

ORANGE, CRANBERRY & PECAN SCOTTISH SHORTBREAD
Laura H used my pecan shortbread recipe, and roasted the nuts, added orange zest & juice, as well as red berries. Here is her feedback:
Another group member from Facebook group Great British Bake Off Fans, is Vicki. She made the cranberry shortbread for the holidays, in petticoat tails. (To join the GBBO Fans Facebook group, be sure to answer all questions & say how you found the group.)
I love the look of the thick shortbread and large cranberries in Vicki’s shortbread.
Here’s Vicki’s feedback & rating below:
Sally also made my flavoured shortbread after liking the original recipe.
