We can't think of a better way to welcome in the New Year than with these Scottish New Year's Crisps. They're as welcome with a glass of bubbly as they are with a glass of milk. And no, you don't have to be Scottish to enjoy these.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar, add egg, and beat until fluffy. Blend in remaining ingredients.
  3. Use a spatula to spread batter evenly into a sprayed jelly roll pan; smooth the top. (Batter will be firm.) Draw fork tines over dough to make straight shallow lines going both horizontally and vertically, creating a crisscross pattern. Bake 30 minutes or to a pale golden color.
  4. Remove from oven and immediately cut into strips. Let cool in pan on a wire rack; when cool, remove carefully. Store in an air-tight container.


If you don't have a jelly roll pan, you could use a 9- x 13-inch glass baking dish.

Made these today. My wife likes them so I have to make more so grandma can averages party with our grandkids.

Yum! Happy New Year!

I can't imagine what these would look or taste like. Does anyone know? I would love to see a picture or video of them.

I imagine they are a lot like shortbread only crispy

Where does the chilling time come in?

Would love to try these, what are the carbs? I must know how to count them.
