This being a royal recipe, however, there have to be more ingredients to make it extra special.

The first is the addition of vanilla paste, offering a delicate floral note which works wonderfully with earl grey tea.

The second addition, and crucial for the melt-in-the-mouth texture, is cornstarch.

“Instead of snapping, it crumbles, and melts in your mouth.”

In this recipe, the royal chef uses a classic Scottish shortbread mould with a thistle, the emblem of Scotland.
