  • Oven
  • Bowl
  • Food Processor Optional


  • 3/4 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Soft brown sugar
  • 1 + 1/2 cup Wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup Rice flour Or cornstarch
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt


  • Start by mixing the cold butter, cut into cubes, with the white sugar and the soft brown sugar. You can mix the sugar and butter with the paddle of the food processor.
  • Then mix the remaining dry ingredients in a bowl: the soft weath flour, rice flour and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix again until you get the cookie dough, you will get a sandy texture that you can finally mix with your hands forming a ball of cookie dough and chill it 30 minutes in the refrigerator before baking.
  • Preheat the oven to a temperature of 160ºC with heat up and down. For this step, remember to prepare a mold, it can be long or round, with baking paper to make it easier to unmold them when they are cold.
  • Now it is time to spread the cookie on your mold. You can help yourself with a spatula or even a glass or your hands to better spread the cookie dough in the mold getting a uniform texture.
  • Shape your cookies before baking with the help of a knife and a fork, they can be rectangular or triangle shaped. 
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes, at low temperature, until you see that the dough of your cookies is browned on the surface.
    Let your Scottish shortbread butter cookies cool in the pan to prevent them from breaking. You can go over the shape you have given them with a knife and let them cool for a few hours in the mold.
  • Remove from the mold and serve. To enjoy your authentic Ted Lasso shortbread cookies, place them in a pretty pink box and give them as a gift! Enjoy your Ted Lasso’s cookies!


To preserve these cookies you can keep the dough frozen and bake them a few hours before serving.
