A recipe for lemon shortbread with lemon butter was one of many that an elderly neighbour shared with my mother back when I was a child — about four years old — and to this day, we still use the same recipe. Having grown up with it, I enjoy buttery and lemony flavours, so couldn’t pass up these Twisted Faves – Lemon Butter Scotch Finger by Arnott’s.
These scotch fingers smell like lemon butter. The buttery short bread flavour comes through immediately, followed by an enjoyable natural lemon flavour that’s zesty, yet its sharpness is mellowed by the rich buttery notes. Essentially, these taste just like the lemon shortbread of my childhood without the curd. Indeed a sandwiching lemon curd would’ve added pops of tangy citrus, although the shortbread itself does not feel dry.
This package of Twisted Faves — Lemon Butter Scotch Fingers contained 232 grams. It was produced in Australia and purchased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
