Classic Scottish Shortbread ~ rich, buttery, 5-ingredient cookies...oven-ready in just 5 minutes! | FiveHeartHome.comAnyone who knows me (or has been following Five Heart Home for even a short while) has probably figured out that I love chocolate. But can I let you in on a little secret? There are certain desserts that I will actually choose over chocolate. {Cue gasps!}

For example, if at a wedding reception, I’m given the choice between a slice of white wedding cake and a slice of chocolate groom’s cake, I will always choose the white cake (unless “both” is an option, in which case my arm can be twisted to eat a slice of each…since I wouldn’t want to hurt the feelings of either cake, of course). And if you offer me a square of decadent fudge alongside a piece of buttery, sugary shortbread? I’m going to pick the shortbread, hands down. Once you try this shortbread — chocolate-lover or not — I think you will do the same!

What makes these cookies utterly delicious is their simplicity. After all, how can you go wrong with flour, butter, sugar, and salt? The result tastes like, well, butter and sugar…and when you’re talking about a crunchy piece of shortbread, that’s a good thing indeed! And just as wonderful is that you can have this yummy treat in your oven zippity-quick…I’m talking ready-to-bake in under five minutes, people! A recipe that’s as easy as it is delicious is always a winner in my book.

I’m sharing this recipe today over at Love Grows Wild, so I hope you’ll hop over to visit Liz and check it out!
