Canada’s Favourite Cookie
Which homemade cookies do we Canadians crave the most?
In February of 2021, Food Network Canada analysed their considerable data to unearth the cooking channel’s most popular cookie recipes of all time. The winner? Good old-fashioned shortbread.
Fittingly, in the 1944 Canadian Favourites Cookbook, Mrs. Jane Montgomery from Victoria, B.C. offers the following tips:
• ‘Too much butter makes shortbread greasy, too little makes it floury and dry.’
• ‘Too much sugar makes it hard.’
• ‘Good shortbread melts in the mouth.’ 👌🏼
