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 aro ma 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.

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




Dean’s Overseas


The Dean’s brand has enjoyed incredible growth since the very early days in Helen Dean’s kitchen.


Now a household brand across Scotland and quickly spreading across the rest of the UK, more and more people are discovering the delicious melt in the mouth taste & texture of Dean’s premium shortbread & biscuits.


In addition, Dean’s now export to around 30 countries around the world, including India, China the USA and many European countries.


Today at Dean’s, the hand baking process is just the same as Helen’s, but on a larger scale. We follow her original home recipe, using only the finest ingredients – most of which come from the same suppliers we have always used.


When ready, our melt in the mouth shortbread is left to cool naturally (just like Helen used to do), which allows the delicious smell to permeate through the town.
