Earlier this fall, MAG staff members Kim and Joanne battled it out in our Stewart Discovery Studio to put their shortbread cookie recipes to the test. Who's recipe did it better? 

Try out the recipes yourself to decide! View the recipes here (PDF).

Kim is the Exhibitions Coordinator at the MAG. Kim's recipe comes from her mom, who learned it in the 1960's while studying at the Possil Senior Secondary School in Glasgow. 

Joanne is Curator of Art here at the museum, and her recipe is the same as the one her mom used while Joanne was growing up. This recipe comes from the back of the Canada Cornstarch box, and doesn't require rolling out the dough.
