Shortbread is part of Christmas fare. From Scotland, check out the evocative tartan and hint of the highlands aimed to resonate with something deep even so this example looks more upmarket than is usual.
Home-made shortbread is very melt-in-the-mouth. Is true shortbread very-very 'short' and loaded with butter?  Or is it true as less short, lots of butter, but with more character, for example, with rice flour?

Along with tradition, isn't Scotland associated with innovation and edgy stuff?

Dreaming of an Aussie Christmas?  Christmas Bush.  Gum leaves.
