I’ve made shortbread a few times now and I definitely won’t forget the chocolate swirl shortbread, recipe here https://ablovesfood.wordpress.com/2016/06/15/chocolate-swirl-shortbread/?preview=true However this recipe has poppyseeds which have their own distinct flavour and adds more texture when you take a bite. I love making shortbread because it’s such a simple quick recipe and it tastes amazing.
Ingredients 175g butter (at room temp) 75g caster sugar 250g plain flour 30g poppyseeds
1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 3 and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
2. Then cream the butter and sugar together until pale before adding the poppyseeds.
3. Next add the flour and knead everything together to form a smooth dough. Now the dough can be rolled out to 1cm thick.
4. Place onto the tray carefully and poke holes throughout the slab using a fork. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until slightly golden then sprinkle with icing sugar!!
Happy Baking 🙂
