Top 10 Shortbread In Malaysia

131

If you are not familiar with shortbread, it is significant with its delicate crumbly texture and beautiful buttery flavor. Shortbread is one of the best classic biscuits in the world which originates from Scotland. Shortbread was expensive biscuits and only served as a luxury biscuit for special days such as Christmas, Scottish New Year’s Eve, and weddings. It was also used for a Scotland tradition where a decorated shortbread is broken over the bride when entering her new house.

It is usually made from one part of white sugar, two parts of butter, and three to four parts of wheat flour. Its crumbly texture is due to the high butter content. Unlike most baked goods, shortbread does not require any leavening such as baking powder or baking soda. You can find shortbreads in the shapes of a petticoat, round, and finger shapes.

Shortbread is delicious on its own, but here are some toppings that you should pair it with!

  • Cream. (Make yourself a shortbread sandwich!)
  • Chocolate dip. (Buttery and chocolatey could never go wrong).
  • Cheese. (I recommend shredded cheese and parmesan cheese!)
  • Fruit jams. (Tangy jam such as orange, blueberry and lemon jam are most recommended).
