For over 30 years, Willa’s Shortbread has produced the finest Shortbread cookies and Cheese Biscuits using traditional southern recipes and with family guarded attention to detail and quality.From her home in the Highlands of North Carolina, Willa Allen began baking traditional shortbread for special events at the local country club. So well received was her shortbread, she began offering it at local markets eventually having to add a second oven in her kitchen to keep up with demand. When Willa adapted her shortbread recipe to produce cookies, the Classic Shortbread was created and remains an all time favorite to this day with it’s rich, buttery goodness. Willa adapted her mother’s famous cheese straw recipe to create our delicious Cheese Biscuits. Customer’s loved the deep cheddar flavor and spicy bite of these crisp delights and soon, Willa began offering them along with her Classic Shortbread cookies.
In 2006, Willa decided to retire and began the search for a buyer. Recognizing the opportunity, her son Clark and partners the Rion family acquired the company and relocated the bakery to the rolling hills of middle Tennessee where Willa’s famous shortbread was soon being produced with the same care and attention Willa was known for.
Today, Willa’s Shortbread is owned and operated by the Rion family who carry on the tradition of high quality and delicious products. All their products are made by hand in small batches to insure freshness and quality. They only the finest, all natural ingredients and never add preservatives or artificial flavorings in any of their recipes.
