Legend has it that it was Mary Queen of Scots who invented this classic shortbread shape, inspired by the stitched sections of material that made up her royal petticoats. Others believe that shortbread petticoat tails derive their name from petits côtés, a French pointed biscuit often enjoyed with a glass of wine. Whichever story you prefer, you'll love the flavor and crunch of these crisp, buttery Scottish-style cookies. They're handcrafted in Edinburgh by a small, family-run bakery using a signature recipe from Fortnum & Mason—a renowned purveyor of fine British culinary specialties since 1707.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toasterfarm from Delightful - THE best tinned shortbread available! I am so happy to be able to buy these at William Sonoma in the US! Fortnum and Mason is my favorite London department store (classic, charming, so festive at the holidays) and their teas and biscuits just can’t be beat. I love pairing these shortbread cookies with their chamomile tea with honey. AMAZING.Date published: 2019-08-13Rated 5 out of 5 by JillianC from A TASTE OF SCOTLAND! I bought these for a Christmas gift for friends traveling to Scotland in a few months. They said they were the best shortbread they've ever had! The tin is also really beautiful & especially perfect for anyone who loves Scotland. I'm glad W-S carries so many wonderful products from Fortnum's!Date published: 2019-01-30Rated 5 out of 5 by RMachado from Superior I am a big fan of shortbread biscuits and these exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this product.Date published: 2018-09-28Rated 5 out of 5 by ML27 from Tea and Biscuits! I was hesitant to buy these cookies since it was so expensive, but I'm glad I did. They are really delicious (I love shortbread cookies)! I tried it with the Fortnum & Mason Raspberry preserves along with my Wedding Breakfast tea and everything was just so good. If you're a fan of afternoon tea, then I'd recommend splurging a little on these shortbread treats.Date published: 2017-02-01
