Another Day Another Batch of Shortbread

Today I am going to the UK to see my friends and family as I have a few days spare between jobs. Unfortunately my boyfriend cannot come with me so this week I am leaving him home alone!

Somehow a deal was struck that as I am leaving him here in Berlin I should make him something ‘yummy’ to enjoy when I am going.  So I am making another batch of shortbread, this time half dipped in white chocolate, here is the recipe;

Ingredients

  • 125g of Butter
  • 55g of Caster Sugar
  • 180g of Flour
  • 100g of White Chocolate

My Uncooked Shortbread Discs

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190
  2. Mix the butter and sugar in a bowl until the mixture is smooth
  3. Begin to stir in the flour in stages through a sive and contiune to mix together thoroughly
  4. At this stage the mixture turns from a paste to a crumbly mixture so use your hands to create a ball with the mixture
  5. Dust a dry and clean surface with flour and roll the mixture out to 1cm thick
  6. Cut out your shapes and place on baking paper on a baking tray (you may have mixture left over, keeping rolling our until you use all of the mixture for the shapes)
  7. Put the shapes into the fridge for 20 minutes
  8. Put into the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until golden
  9. Leave to cool for 45 minutes
  10. Once the biscuits are cold, melt the white chocolate and one by one dip half of the biscuit into the chocolate and place on a tray covered in baking paper
  11. Once all of the biscuits are done put into the fridge for 30 minutes until the chocolate has set

My Finished White Chocolate Shortbread

I am really disappointed that I won’t be here to eat these as they look delicious and my sweet tooth seems to enjoy white chocolate a lot more than milk chocolate at the moment. Hopefully they will keep my boyfriend happy whilst I am away!
