A little about Dean’s…

It was here that Helen first created her delicious traditional shortbread, and her friends and family loved the ‘melt in the mouth’ sensation. Her husband Bill, a Drum Major, thought it was so delicious he decided to use Helen’s baking to help raise funds for the local Huntly pipe band.

Their touring helped spread her shortbread’s fame far and wide, and soon, the aroma of home baking would fill the town as Helen established her own small bakery to meet demand.

So popular was the light and crumbly shortbread that in 1992, Dean’s moved to a new purpose built bakery on the outskirts of Huntly.

Today, Dean’s is still a family run business priding itself on using time honoured handcrafted baking methods, and is recognised as ‘The Leading Premium Quality Scottish Shortbread’.
