You only need a short break to make this traditional Scottish shortbread as it takes about 15 minutes preparation and a mere twenty minutes or so in the oven – delicious, home-made buttery biscuits in less than an hour. It also gives us the opportunity to use some of our favourite household objects.
The first is this lovely vintage wooden biscuit mould. It makes the perfect-sized round to last a couple of days with just a nice, simple touch of decoration around the edge.
The second object is this gorgeous vintage 1960s Jacob’s biscuit tin. We really love the stylised thistle decoration made up of various Scottish tartans – and the biscuit round fits perfectly inside.
And last but not least, a favourite spotty mug – filled with strong afternoon tea of course – the perfect accompaniment!
Here’s the Scottish shortbread recipe we published last year if you fancy giving it a try.
