Walnut Shortbread

If you thought I was done making biscuits so was I, but on a quiet weekend at home we got hungry so I just had to make some more. No experiments this time though, this baking session was just for eating! We decided we wanted shortbread recipe but this time with a nutty twist. Here is my recipe for Walnut Shortbread;


  • 125g of Butter
  • 55g of Caster Sugar
  • 180g of Flour
  • 75g of Crushed Walnuts

  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
  5. Then add the crushed walnuts to the mixture
  6. Use your hands to create a ball with the mixture
  7. Dust a dry and clean surface with flour and roll the mixture out to 1cm thick
  8. 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)
  9. Put the shapes into the fridge for 20 minutes
  10. Put into the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until golden
  11. Leave to cool for 45 minutes

Satisfaction is always guaranteed with this recipe for Walnut Shortbread, the biscuits themselves are just delicious and the addition of walnuts is perfect. I think you could try this recipe out adding any type of nuts or sweet treats to the recipe before baking!

    I love walnuts, in addition to many other types of nuts 🙂 I can just imagine how good this biscuit is. I think I would like to try the shortbread with lemon zest, pistachios and some sort of dried fruit.

    1. Oh yes that sounds so good! Might even be used for my next batch!
