Up against the Christmas season's riot of chocolate-coated, frosted, sugar-studded sweets, shortbread is the holiday's most understated cookie. I've always been a partial to the dense, buttery biscuits, but relied on boxes of Walkers to get my fix. Why bother baking when the store-bought stuff is so good? Still, I had to wonder whether I was missing out on shortbread's full potential by not making it from scratch. This holiday season, I turned the question over to my testers.
Basic shortbread consists of just five ingredients: butter, flour, sugar, vanilla, and salt. The recipe is Scottish in origin, where it has long been a traditional holiday food, served on Christmas as well as the New Year's Eve festival of Hogmanay. Shortbread may date back as far as the 12th Century; in the 16th Century, Mary, Queen of Scots is said to have loved wedge-shaped shortbread cookies called "Petticoat Tails." Although these days we eat shortbread year-round, it's still most closely associated with the holiday season.
Leftovers PotentialEither variety of shortbread cookie will keep very well. Homemade cookies will be good to eat for up to a month, sealed in an airtight container, and safe to eat (albeit somewhat stale) for much longer than that. Walkers boxes are labeled with a "Best By" date that's up to a year from the date of purchase.

They then set about making the business their own - and what better way to do that than to make it a real family affair? And so as soon as they were able to stand upright and put biscuits in a box, all three Laing children were kitted out in oversized white overalls to join their parents in the bakery. It was a great relief for Anthony and Fiona when they discovered the use of child labour was not illegal so long as they didn't pay them. A double win, in the House of Edinburgh shortbread's favor.
