On Butter Cookies and Burning Questions

Posted By on Mon, Oct 1, 2012 at 4:14 PM

Okay, "burning" is putting it too strongly, but when I was starting this post on Makeda's famous butter cookies and Made from Scratch's shortbread cookies, I realized that I wasn't sure if butter cookies and shortbread were the same thing.

Apparently, they are not, and it's a matter of the butter/flour ratio, with the shortbread using more butter. And, indeed, the Made from Scratch cookie is indulgently rich.

So, one final question: Makeda's or Made from Scratch? Yes and yes. There is no wrong answer.

Made from Scratch cookies are available at Miss Cordelia's.

    • Hattie B's Opening in April

      [image-1] Hattie B's, the hot chicken Nashville chain, had originally hoped to open this fall. They've since reset their sights to early April. Construction of the space on Cooper includes new plumbing, HVAC, and electrical. The restaurant will have seating for 126, with seating for 60 outdoors. "We are so excited about our Memphis opening in early spring. It’s such an honor for all of us at Hattie B’s to be a part of the community, and we look forward to seeing our many Memphis friends and meeting new hot chicken lovers real soon," says Nick Bishop Sr., co-owner of Hattie B's Hot Chicken.
