Scottish Short Bread

Asalaam Alaykum Muslimat and hello to all readers.

I'll be starting with one of my favourite biscuits, the Scottish short bread. I used to enjoy these biscuits in my stay in Scotland, so when I came back home, I had to learn how to make them..:). They are great to serve for guests with coffee and they are a must now in my Eid baking list (Eid=celebration in Islam)


400 gram unsalted butter
1 3/4 cups corn flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rice flour
1 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon salt


  • In a bowl, mix all ingredients with hand
  • flatten the dough, and cut into shapes you like
  • preheat oven to 160-170 degrees, place them on the baking tray, and bake for around 10 minutes or so, I use an electric oven so it does take me a bit longer.
