On Butter Cookies and Burning Questions



Okay, "burning" is putting it too strongly, but when I was starting this post on Makeda's famous butter cookies and Made from Scratch's shortbread cookies, I realized that I wasn't sure if butter cookies and shortbread were the same thing.

Apparently, they are not, and it's a matter of the butter/flour ratio, with the shortbread using more butter. And, indeed, the Made from Scratch cookie is indulgently rich.

So, one final question: Makeda's or Made from Scratch? Yes and yes. There is no wrong answer.

Made from Scratch cookies are available at Miss Cordelia's.
