Shortbread cookies are a staple in any Celtic kitchen. Light and buttery, they illude some bakers, but not you. Join us for our June shortbread cookie baking demo at McCarthy’s Pub!
Shortbread originated in Scotland and due to its popularity made it throughout the United Kingdom. This recipe comes from Red Stag Pub owner, Neville Gardner’s family in Northern Ireland. Because his family was quite poor, they couldn’t afford to purchase many ingredients, which kept their recipes simple. What makes this cookie unique is the buttery and crumbly consistency.
Baking starts at 6:30 and guests are invited to bring a drink from the bar to class!
