Willow McGrain's family has made shortbread for over a hundred years. It's the kind of classic, buttery, toasty, crispy cookie you'd expect to find at high tea in Scotland. Instead, it's made in South Carolina's lowcountry. With fifty individually wrapped pieces, gleaming with a gold sticker, slipped in a fire engine red tin, my first thought is this would make a great gift for an office. We've been offering it that way for several years with tremendous success.
However, there's no reason it can't make other journeys. Fifty days of Christmas? Fifty things you're thankful Mom taught you? Of course there's also fifty ways to leave your lover, in which case you might want to get the tin for yourself.
Excellent paired with traditional Earl Grey Tea.
