Ok, so there might not be any thing “light” about these Christmas delights, but the way these cookies melt in your mouth you’ll think they are! They are so easy to make and will be a Christmas tradition if they aren’t already.  Canada is made up of so many cultures and we are very lucky to sample the world in our cuisine.  Thank you, Scotland, (and Aunt Eliza) for these gems.

Great-Great-Aunt Eliza’s Scottish Shortbread
Submitted by John Templeton, Alberta

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 – 1 cup butter

Note: I’ve always been told the butter variation has to do with barometric pressure

Mix together using fingers only, very gently
