Cooked shortbread rounds

This is a list of shortbread biscuits and cookies. Shortbread is a type of biscuit or cookie traditionally made from one part sugar, two parts butter, and three parts flour as measured by weight. Shortbread originated in Scotland; the first recorded recipe was by a Scotswoman named Mrs McLintock and printed in 1736.[1]

Several varieties of shortbread exist, including mass-produced shortbread. Some stray from the classic recipe by adding ground rice or cornflour or cornstarch in addition to white wheat flour to alter the texture. Others may add salt to the ingredients, or split the sugar into equal parts granulated sugar and icing or powdered sugar.
