    This is a Scottish recipe. The cornflour improves the crumbly texture. Chocolate, raisins and nuts are some of the things which can be added as well.

    I think it's very easy, well most of it sure is anyway! The only bit that I really struggled on was the mixing of the ingredients - the mixing it into breadcrumbs with your fingers bit I actually found to be easier using dough whisks. Plus it reduces your mixing time by about 5-8 minutes. From then it gets pretty easy with the rolling and cutting and everything...!

    I really wanted to try to make my own Maryland brand cookies but I couldn't find a recipe that even looked like it would be anywhere close to a Maryland cookie. I read the ingredients listed on the back on the packet and found out that 1. they were made with vegetable oil, NOT butter and 2. they didn't have any eggs in them. They are basically chocolate chip shortbread made with vegetable oil instead of butter! You will need either a standing electric mixer or a handheld electric mixer.

    So easy to follow, so yummy on the taste buds. Fun for the kiddies to help you with. Definitely my family favourite. I have said this makes 12, but this depends on how big your cutter is.

    A lovely buttery traditional family shortbread recipe that's been handed down from gran to mum to me. Very easy and always turns out perfectly.
