Little Christmas Shortbreads



25 piece(s)


  • 55 g raw sugar
  • 55 g rice flour
  • 115 g Butter, softened
  • 115 g plain flour
  • 1 pinch salt

1 Packet Glace Cherries, Red and Green


Recipe's preparation

    This is my Grandma's recipe and was always a huge hit at Christmas Time
  1. Preheat oven to 150°C. Line a large oven tray with baking paper.


    Weigh raw sugar into TM bowl. Mill 10 sec / sp 10


    Scrape down sides of mixing bowl


    Add remaining ingredients. Mix 7 sec / sp 6


    Remove dough from TM bowl and place on Thermomat or floured surface.


    If using Thermomat, form dough into ball then fold Thermomat in half to cover dough. Use rolling pin (or a wine bottle is just as good) to roll dough to 1cm thickness.  


    Use cookie cutter to cut shortbread into shapes, and place onto baking tray (leave a little bit of space in between shortbreads as they spread slightly). 


    Cut glace cherries in half and lightly press one half into the middle of each shortbread


    Place in oven and bake for 35 minutes. 


    The shortbread will still be a little soft when it comes out, but will harden as it cools. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before removing from baking tray.
