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.

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of sugar.

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.

Enjoy!
