Bring butter to room temperature

Combine butter and sugar, mix until combined (3 min)

Add in flour, salt and spices, rub together between thumb and for fingers.

You are looking for the dough to almost come together in big chunks (5 min).

Bring dough together and tip out onto a lightly floured work surface.

Roll out the dough to roughly 1⁄4 in thickness. Cut out into desired shapes!

You can re-roll excess dough up to 3 times. (5 min)

Bake at 265 F (130 C) for about 50 minutes (biscuits should be firm to the touch!)

Modern Scottish recipe: Roast salmon with wilted spinach and Old Pulteney whisky cream reduction

To finish, melt your dark chocolate and half dip shortbread.
