Dreamlike Shortbread Biscuits


The recipe I followed for this delicious dreamlike shortbread biscuits is taken from Lorraine Pascales baking made ‘easy’ series and let me tell you it is just that, easy.


3 standard ingredients of shortbread are butter, sugar and flour however, the addition of rice flour I feel gives shortbread a better sandy texture. If you haven’t got rice flour to hand then I’ve read fine semolina can be used instead.
Some recipes out there call for corn flour although I’m not sure if this can be used as a direct rice flour substitute it does seem more plausible to me than fine semolina, as corn flour and rice flour have a more similar texture.

You can’t go wrong with Lorraines simple instructions for making and decorating,  get a fork and your pinchy fingers ready! Rich, crumbly and melt in your mouth goodness, Lorraine gives suggestions on how to give your shortbread a little flavour oomph with citrus zest or stem ginger! For full recipe click here

I forgot to sprinkle caster sugar over the shortbread once it had baked, but don’t worry if you make that mistake / choice it is definitely sweet enough without it

Oh i almost forgot shortbread goes well with a nice cup of tea / coffee and don’t mind any crumbs etc on the carpet I had an excuse for not vacuuming that day… you guessed it I’d been baking shortbread……!
