- About SPC
It’s time to dust off your tartans, dig out your shortbread tins and mark your calendars! On Sunday, October 29th, we will honor the Scottish heritage we have as Presbyterians with our annual celebration. We need your help to bake shortbread for our celebration. You may use the recipe below or one of your choosing. The shortbread can be dropped off at the church office from October 23rd-27th or in the gym before the first service. If you have any questions, please contact Diane Burden at 843-771-4404 or Ellen Carney at 843-343-3223.
½ lb, butter (no substitutes – salted is better), softened
1 cup confectioners sugar (aka, powdered sugar)
2 cups sifted, (yes, you must sift!) all-purpose flour (not bread flour)
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp. genuine (real) vanilla
DIRECTIONS: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar, salt & vanilla. Mix in flour just until combined. Grease (Pam is ok, but butter is ok too) a 7 x 11 pan – a 9 x 9 pan will work, too. Pat the dough into the pan/dish. Prick the top with a fork and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until delicately brown. Cut immediately into small pieces. Remove from the pan when they are cool. Store them at room temperature.
