This is the one that wins the awards for the best tasting shortbread in Scotland - light, slightly flaky, and just the right blend of buttery sweetness. A sprinkle of sugar on top, crunchy texture and buttery aroma will have your mouth watering before the first bite. From The Shortbread House of Edinburgh, of course! Each box holds eight perfect shortbread fingers for you to savor with a cup of great tea or just as is. Some Scots add jam or lemon curd on top. Anyway you eat it, it is truly delicious. 6 oz. box. Another one of the 1000 foods to eat before you die, according to NY Times Food writer, Mimi Sheraton.
Ingredients: Wheat flour, butter, sugar, rice flour, vegetable oils, and salt.
SHORTBREAD HOUSE is a small, family run bakery based in Scotland's historic capital city of Edinburgh. Anthony Laing and his wife Fiona acquired the business in 1989. Since then, it has grown from a small customer base in Scotland to having customers throughout the UK and abroad. Anthony comes from a family with a strong baking tradition. His father is Lord Laing who was chairman of United Biscuits.
Shortbread House does not aspire to become a large conglomerate, preferring to concentrate on a niche market where quality, rather than quantity, is emphasized. Their customer base is predominantly the independent retail trade such as delicatessens, garden centres and department stores such as Fortnum & Mason, John Lewis and Harvey Nichols. All products are genuinely made by hand, so their taste, texture and appearance are quite different from the mass produced brands.
Quality is baked in by a small team of skilled bakers using the very best quality ingredients. All products for Scottish Gourmet USA are made to order to ensure you receive the products as fresh as possible.
