Shortbread or Shortie as it is fondly called is a Scottish biscuit variety that is associated with Christmas and Hogmanay festivals in Scotland. Shortbread is so named due to its crumbled texture. Unlike other biscuits and baked products, shortbread does not have any leavening like baking powder or soda. Here the Chef makes a zingy shortbread with lemon zest and poppy seeds.

Chef Tejasvi’s sweet, tangy and crumbly Shortbread just melts in your mouth.
