My wife reckons Dean's is a bit nicer than Walker's but her own is very good most of the time. I eat the 'high fired' ones first - she doesn't like me calling them burnt.

So, after the burning of the biscuits, they are really now short bread! LOL! (sorry!)

I've never seen Dean's in the USA but have had them in Scotland and have been sent some. Our Scottish friends like them best and I think I do too. Better than Walker's by a long shot.

Oh, crap, that is so aggravating. Kazzz. Good luck with the next batch!

I love that Kenn - 'high fired' sounds extra Scottish for some reason. Maybe like Highland - High fired, etc. :)
Re: Shortbread disaster by johnnythemonkey on 7 December 2008 6:45pm
The term is well-fired. Well seen that Ken is'nt really Scottish. :)

I saw Walkers shortbreads in the shops today!

Made a successful batch today for Ava's playgroup party tomorrow, that's if Kathryn and I don't eat them all tonight!

Kaz, start the evening off with a spoonful of clag across your lips. Maybe that will save the cookies for Ava's party.
