Ingredients:

225 g butter softened (room temp)

65 g YIAH lemon myrtle and white chocolate powder

255 g plain flour

Method:

Preheat oven to 350d

Add butter and lemon myrtle powder to bowl. Mix for 5s, speed 6. Scrape down. Mix for a further 15s, speed 4. Scrape down. add flour and knead on interval speed for 30s.

scrape out of bowl onto a counter dusted with powdered sugar. Pull off 20g pieces and roll into balls (or roll out 1/4 inch thick and cut out using cutter)

place balls on a lined or greased baking tray about an inch apart. Slightly flatten the balls with the tines of a fork or your fingers. Bake for 16-18 min, turn tray 180d halfway through cooking if browning unevenly. They should be just golden around the edge and paler in the middle. Leave to cool on trays.

Once completely cooled decorate with a drizzle of glacé icing (1 tsp water added to 100g of icing sugar ) pop it in a ziploc bag, snip the tiniest bit off the corner and it’s the perfect little piping bag. For added texture and to turn these into something extra special (see photo of gift boxed shortbreads) …before the glacé icing sets, sprinkle some lemon myrtle, white chocolate and cranberry dukkah over the biscuits

*the links above link to my YIAH sales page where you can buy the products I use. This gives me a commission as I am a consultant for YIAH. Saying that, if you want to omit those products, here is how:

use straight forward icing sugar instead of YIAH powder, add some zest of lemon and lime to the bowl at the same time as the flour and add some lime zest to the glacé icing and call them key lime shortbreads 🙂 possibilities with this base recipe are endless.

note:

(use pure icing sugar, cheap icing sugar is cut with tapioca starch or cornflour which can cause your shortbreads to distort as it causes them to expand)
