Burton's Biscuits

Old Shortbread Mould

This was one of the large moulds used in the early days, to make Burton's shortbread biscuits.  I can't remember the exact dimensions of this one - perhaps about a foot high.

Shortbread Biscuits - 1991

This photograph of a roller for one of the Burton's machines shows how the shortbread biscuits were made in 1992.  They may well still be made the same way today, in 2008.
