Some quick and easy shortbread made for my family and the kids teachers.

RECIPE

Ingredients
150g (6oz) plain or gluten free flour
50g (2oz) sugar
100g (4oz) softened butter
25g milk chocolate chips
25g white chocolate chips

Steps
1. Rub together butter, sugar and flour until a dough starts to form
2. Mix in the chocolate chips
3. Roll dough into a log around 1/12-2 inches thick
4. Refrigerate for 20 minutes, 24 hours maximum
5. Preheat oven to 180oC and line two trays with greaseproof paper
6. Using a very sharp knife, gently slice dough whatever thickness you would like (I got around 15 small shortbread)
7. Place on the baking trays and bake for 10-15 minutes until slightly coloured.
8. Leave to cool on the trays for 10 minutes before trying to move the shortbread else it will crumble.
9. Store in a air tight container, best eaten as soon as possible.

TIPS
1. You can make the dough in advance and freeze as a log for up to a month in the freezer, just remove the night before needed and refrigerate
2. Add nuts or dried fruit for a different filling oreven dunk in chocolate.
3. You can use cookie cutters

I made them, but it turned out that well. They taste great, but when I was going to get them out of the oven I turned out that they expanded way to much and ended up like a gigant cookie. Yours look like they didn't deform at all. Mine got flattened :c

Do you know why?

Did you chill the cookie dough enough before baking? This really helps to prevent them expanding, they will expand a little but they should not do that.

Yes, I lef them like an hour. Maybe nex time I'll leave them a bit longer (:

Anyways, they were amazing!
