Shortbread Competition

The origin of shortbread goes back to around

the 12th century when it was originally made

from leftover bread-making dough that

was left to dry out and harden.

The more refined version of shortbread, as

we know it today, is attributed to 16th century 

Scotland, particularly to Mary, Queen of Scots,

who was said to have loved it.

Would your recipe please a queen?  Let's find out.  Enter by clicking the button below. Registration closes March 22. 

Scones Competition

Scones are thought to have originated

in Scotland in the early 1500s, first being

referenced in writing by a Scottish

poet in 1513.  

Around 1840, in most of Europe, scones became an essential part of the fashionable afternoon tea .


Would your recipe be celebrated all over Europe?  We'll be the judge.
