We baked three different kinds of shortbread cookies for Christmas this year. Plain shortbread, Lavender shortbread, and these - butterscotch. I couldn't tell you which was my favorite, but I can tell you they were all enjoyed by everyone! This recipe is my adaptation of a traditional Scots Shortbread.
