Poppyseed Shortbread

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.

Makes 15

Ingredients                                                                                                                                            175g butter (at room temp)                                              75g caster sugar                                                                  250g plain flour                                                                  30g poppyseeds

Method

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 🙂
