Shortbread is a classic Scottish dessert. Although shortbread was prepared during much of the 12th century, the refinement of shortbread is credited to Mary, Queen of Scots in the 16th century. In Shetland, it is traditional to break a decorated shortbread cake over the head of a new bride on the entrance of her new house.
