At Willa’s Shortbread, “Traditionally Southern” isn’t just a name; it’s our heritage. Since 1977, Willa’s Shortbread has produced the finest Shortbread cookies and Cheese Biscuits using traditional southern recipes and with family guarded attention to detail and quality. From her home in the Highlands of North Carolina, Willa Allen began baking traditional shortbread for special events at the local country club. So well received was her shortbread, she began offering it at local markets eventually having to add a second oven in her kitchen to keep up with demand.
When Willa adapted her shortbread recipe to produce cookies, the Classic Shortbread was created and remains an all time favorite to this day with it’s rich, buttery goodness.
