Shortbread for Saturday

Been doing some work on how recipes resemble mnemonics and poetry in form, even nursery rhymes. More on this later. In the meantime as it is the weekend, it seems a good opportunity to publish a good shortbread recipe from the Edinburgh Book of Plain Cookery Recipes 1932 (originally the School Cookery Book of 1879 compiled by Miss C.E. Guthrie Wright.)

As cooked by p&g for many years with great success...
