shortbread cookies & the british open

Shortbread Cookies & the British Open // A Style Caddy

The third major, the British Open, of the year starts tomorrow! This year it will be at the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland, the "home of golf". It's always more fun to watch golf on European courses because links golf makes for prettier and much harder courses. It will be interesting to see who wins on Sunday with Rory McIlroy out for a bit with an ankle injury and Jordan Spieth on a roll after his fourth win this year.

My parents actually left for Scotland to watch the Open on Monday and I'm quite jealous! I thought that since I'm not there to watch in person, I'd make a traditional Scottish treat to have while watching on TV. I decided to make shortbread cookies and really struggled with it. I finally had success {third time's a charm!} with this recipe from Ina Garten {can always rely on her for a good recipe} and followed it exactly. The only suggestion I have is to use good quality European butter, which has a higher fat content than American butter. We really like Kerrygold in our house.

Happy cookie making!
