Chunky Shortbread Recipe

I love chunky shortbread however most of the stuff you get in the shops are thin “rounds”. So for the past month I’ve been looking for a really good chunky shortbread recipe. As it turns out, shortbread is really simple to make.

5. Bake until a pale golden brown on the edges, approximately 1 hour. If you think its getting too dark cover with tin foil.
6. Sprinkle sugar over the top. Cut into squares then leave to cool.


Thanks for reading.

    It’s so bad you can’t send me an email with this shortbread! Science has nothing to be proud about! 😉
