Shortbread cookies from Hawaii got its distinct small size and DNA from a few places. Long ago they used to be sold in 5-gallon jars that were used in crack seed stores. So they needed to be small to fit through the opening of the jar. Also, makers found that people were buying them for omiyagi (gifts) and taking them inter island and also back to their homeland. This means they would be getting moved a lot and needed to be strong. This had makers produce a strong and small shortbread cookie that you now see made by many makers through out stores in Hawaii!
