Shortbread is, a product most commonly associated with Scotland, its country of origin. This crumbly, tender, sweet treat often comes in tartan-patterend packaging, with images of heather-covered mountains and shaggy cows. But when it comes down to it, it’s just flour, butter and sugar. And Ireland produces some of the finest butter on earth. So can Irish shortbread beat Scotland at its own game? You bet it can!
