Michael Rogers, communications officer for the Small Business Association of Michigan, interviews Dorothy Truebiro, owner of Scotty Dotty Shortbread. From her Facebook page: “There is a real "Dotty" behind Scotty Dotty Shortbread Company, and I began making shortbread alongside my British Mum about 40 years ago.
Friends would ask for her recipe but could never create that authentic Scottish Shortbread taste. We use real butter, finely ground sugar and a low, slow bake to make shortbread which is crisp on the edges with a rich, moist center.
My female fans have admitted to hiding their personal stash of shortbread in their nightstand, in the kitchen junk drawer, even in a shoe box to keep it from marauding husbands, because it has that decadent quality that must be savored... and apparently protected!
After much persuading from these same fans, I have embraced my calling as a baker and am making my Scottish Shortbread in a commercial kitchen and making it available through direct sales. I encourage you to try a box, tell us what you think, and remember, "no fighting over the crispy corners!"
