Quick Shortbread

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

So this shortbread recipe is a little different for a shortbread because it uses icing sugar as opposed to caster sugar. This makes the dough even more smooth as it dissolves much quicker into the butter and the end result has softer texture in the mouth when eating. It’s super simple and quick to make, not sweet at all and would be perfect for a mini snack.

Recipe: Quick shortbread (makes 16)

Ingredients

113g butter

25g icing sugar

136g plain flour

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together, add the flour until it forms a smooth dough using your hands.
  • Roll out the dough until just under 1cm thick, use a cookie cutter to cut out the shapes and repeat until all of the dough is used up.
  • Place each shortbread on the tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Cheesecake

My new favourite dessert to make is lime flavoured cheesecake 🙂 it’s so simple but super tasty. This can be enjoyed by anyone.

I put my own touch on them by putting the mixture into little glasses which look great at dinner parties.

I really enjoy baking or making desserts these days because it’s so much more healthier than buying junk food which contains a load of bad ingredients. Not only that but you also know what ingredients are being used. Even though the cheesecake does contain cream cheese which can be quite fattening when eaten in moderation it’s okay 😀
