Hello everyone, I hope your week has been great.
This recipe is a spiced twist on the original and the taste is just as delightful, the good thing about mixed spices is that you get a mixture of flavours from the nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger which all complement the shortbread. Another difference is the use of brown sugar which offers a deep, rich treacly taste, not usually associated with shortbread but compliments the taste none the less.
Recipe: Brown sugar spiced shortbread (makes 30)
150g plain flour
3 1/2 tbsp dark brown soft sugar
1/2 tsp mixed spice
- Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and line a tray with baking paper.
- Mix the flour, sugar and mixed spice in a large bowl. Rub the butter until it forms crumbs. Bring together to form a smooth dough.
- Roll out on a lightly floured surface, use a small cutter to cut out the shortbread and place on a the tray.
- Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool down.
