Tip

This mixture isn't really the type where you can roll it, so it's best to pack it will into a baking pan.

Also, If you're feeling adventerous you could also try adding some lemon/orange zest or even some lavendar!

    Tried another recipe from another site this year for Christmas gifts and was a little disappointed. So went back and baked these - they never disappoint. So easy to make and then wrap up for gifts. It is now my go to recipe.

    Submitted by Bodders on 14. October 2017 - 23:22.

    Wow, truly amazing and definitely the best shortbread I have ever eaten. Added two whole lemon rinds into grinding the sugar and a couple of drops of lemon oil into the combined mixture. Rolled into two long sausages and then sliced into circles followed by impressing the base of a cut glass to slightly flatten. Finished by dipping into more lemon sugar. (They do expand so do not put them too close to each other)
    Cooked at different temperature than recommended until they looked slightly golden.

    Delicious! I added lemon rind to the sugar before blitzing. My oven tends to burn so I took out after 40 minutes - the middle is a bit soft but still yum and I'll definitely be making again. Thanks for sharing

    Definitely IS the best in the world, made this for my work colleagues and everyone loved it. Even shared it with a couple of people who have a thermomix too! I only cooked mine for 40mins as like it a bit softer. First batch I made I cooked for the 50 mins and had a crusty kinda top, but no one seemed to notice as both were gobbled up quick !! Thanks for sharing.

  • Hubby loves the shortbread

    Submitted by ccgardens on 1. July 2016 - 13:52.

    Hubby loves the shortbread tmrc_emoticons.) Recipe was quick & easy. I substituted rice flour for cornflour with no problems. My baking time was 1 1/2 hours not 50min, it was probably a combination of my deep small baking pan & my cool oven. I covered it with tinfoil for the last 1/2 hr so it wouldn't brown up. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

    I did add a pinch of salt and vanilla. Next time I might try lemon rind with the sugar. Cooked the shortbread in 10.5 cm flan dishes and then cut into eight triangular wedges. Beautiful.  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Absolutely delicious!   Made this for the second time and added the zest of a lemon when milling the sugar.  Should be a great little Christmas give away - that's if it lasts that long!

    This recipe is amazing.  Cannot believe that I can finally make a decent shortbread.  I wish I could post a photo as the mould I made this in is so pretty and it turned out perfectly.  Tried it twice now, but will make it many times more.
