Highlander Shortbread Biscuits

This is my version of a meltingly light shortbread biscuit.  I came up with it after reading a few different recipes for Highlander biscuits, that seemed to use evaporated milk, or some similar liquid.  But I found a few that didn’t include liquid, only softened butter.  So my version is very similar to a shortbread, […]
