Vanilla and Chocolate Shortbread

My sister Lisa has baked these delicious shortbreads yesterday. The recipe is from BBC but she changed a few things… So she created two different biscuits, chocolate and vanilla flavour. I’m not a huge fan of shortbread but I can’t even say why… However the chocolate ones won my heart. I love these biscuits to tea and coffee!

Vanilla Shortbread:

  • 200gr. butter
  • 180gr. flour
  • 75gr. sugar
  • 1tsp  honey
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Beat the sugar, butter, honey and vanilla bean pulp until smooth.
  3. Stir in the flour to get a smooth paste. Turn on to a work surface and gently roll out until the paste is 1cm thick.
  4. Cut into rounds or fingers and place onto a baking tray. Pierce them with a fork to get the pattern you want and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Set aside to cool on a wire rack.

Note: For the chocolate shortbread use 140gr. flour and 40gr. cacao and leave out the vanilla bean.

Wish you a great week!
