Christmas Shortbread Recipe

In the wintertime I like to cuddle up in the sofa wrapped in blankets, watching a Christmas film with a cup of tea and some short bread. (hot chocolate also works).

So today I wanted to share with you my easy Christmas short bread recipe.
This recipe can be vegan or not, depends on what ingredients you use. If ®

I have chosen to use two very festive moulds to cut out my shortbread. A star and a polar bear! These shortbreads always go down a treat in my house!

Ingredients:
250g Plain Flour (I use a gluten free one)
175g Butter (I use a vegan butter)
2 tsp Cinnamon Powder
2 tsp Icing sugar (optional)
75g Caster Sugar (I like to do half caster sugar and half coconut sugar)

Method:
(It’s easier if you use your hands to mix the ingredients together).

Pre-heat your over to 180’c.

Place the butter and flour into a mixing bowl, and rub the mixture together until the mixture resembles ‘bread crumbs’.

Stir in the sugar and cinnamon along with 2 tsp of water, combine all of the ingredients into a ball.

Lightly cover a surface with flour. (I tend to use quite a bit). And start to roll out the mixture to about 2.5mm of thickness.

Cut out your shapes, and place onto a lined baking tray.

Place the tray into the over for about 10-12 minutes. Or until they are lightly golden.

Lightly dust over the icing sugar on top. Leave to cool for about 10 minutes.
