Shortbread, specifically my grandfathers. Unfortunately I am not going to share his recipe, but I will give away one tip in it “butter, lots and lots of butter”. Nothing says the holidays to me like good shortbread cookies.
You can, however, get Walkers Shortbread in a tin and it can be made good with my grandfathers trick: butter. Yeah, that guy really liked butter. So the trick he taught me with store bought shortbread is simple:
- shortbread on plate
- put a slice of butter on top of it (you don’t need a ton)
- microwave for 30 seconds
So damned good. One of those things where you are at both like “oh goodness” but also “I bet that’s good”.
