Technically still shortbread, but I think deserving of its own, seperate listing....

Hmm, this is one of those problem items, a bit like a Tunnocks Tea Cake. They are biscuits but declare themselves to be "cakes".

Ah, but Tunnocks Tea Cakes are a cake with a biscuit base, so they are definitely part-biscuit. Whereas Jaffa Cakes have a sponge base, so they are not.

Must be, with a name like that.

So McVities Viennese Whirls are also Scottish. :)

I think Empire Biscuits are Scottish (or at least they are if they go by that name!).

What about Hobnobs? Or are they considered British and not Scottish? If that won't work, how about gingernut biscuits?

Bannocks. Sort of half bread, half biscuit.

Aberdeen Softies and Manse Biscuits, from The Scots Kitchen by F. Marian McNeill (recommended reference for Scots cooking). It also contains recipes for Parlies and Abernethy biscuits, and several variations on oatcakes and shortbread.
