- Traditionally a Christmas or Scottish New Year’s Eve treat, shortbread has become a year-around favorite. The rich, buttery cookie requires only three ingredients—flour, sugar and butter. Other ingredients are added for flavor enhancement. Because the dough contains lots of butter, the cookie is very tender and crumbly.
