Why is it that I have such a weakness for desserts that contain lots of butter?
You may remember from my Croissants post, that 1) Croissants have an insane amount of butter and 2) This is why they taste so good. Just as croissants were my downfall when I moved to France, shortbread was my buttery weakness when I lived in Scotland. My shortbread addiction was not helped by the fact that I was constantly surrounded by little packets of Walkers shortbread during my first few months in Scotland. I worked for a short time at a hotel in Edinburgh and we used to give guests complimentary shortbread. Although, when I say I gave the guests shortbread, it was more like I shared it. Yes, it was really one of those “one for you, one for me” situations.
