a festive twist to the usual shortbread, so good even Santa will approve! #MakeOursYours

How It’s Done:

  1. Brown the butter – cook the butter over a medium heat until brown and smelling nutty. Leave until cold.
  2. The butter will have lost a little weight in the browning process so top it back up to 100g with fresh cold butter.
  3. Put butter, sugar and flour into a bowl and mix until breadcrumb consistency.
  4. Add milk a tbsp at a time until it forms a dough. Wrap in cling film and chill for an hour.
  5. Roll out dough to 1cm thick and cut using different Christmas shapes.
  6. Place dough shapes on a lined baking tray, prick with a fork and bake for 15 mins until slightly golden.
  7. Mix the spice mix and remaining caster sugar and scatter over the shortbread and leave to cool.
