Arnott's Scotch Fingers Inspired Recipe


  • 170 gm salted butter, softened
  • 90 gm (2/3 cup) soft icing sugar
  • 165 gm (1 cup) plain flour
  • 10 gm (1½) tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease a 30cm x 20cm rectangular slice pan and line base and sides with baking paper, extending paper 2cm above edge of pan.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and icing sugar for 2 mins or until pale and creamy. Sift the flour and baking powder over the butter mixture and mix on low speed or with your hands until combined.
  3. Press mixture into slice pan and smooth over with a pallet knife. Bake for 25 minutes. (At this stage you can also imprint SCOTCH, your name or even your kid's names for a fun personal touch!)
  4. Remove from oven and using a small sharp knife immediately slice into rectangular pieces 5cm crossways x 7.5cm lengthways. Then run the knife gently ½ way into the shortbread pieces, not touching the bottom, to make the finger indent. Let the biscuit cool in the pan for 10-15 min before moving to a cooling rack.
  5. Trim edges, if desired, before serving. Enjoy!
