And another bit of baking...

...with lots of my blogging friends all planning and carrying out baking, I felt it was my duty to join in and make again the shortbread that I made before, but didn't post the recipe.

The recipe is from the Sainsbury's magazine last year, and my version is a half quantity of the original.

Cream together 5oz butter with 1.5 oz dark brown sugar and 1.5 oz caster sugar. Stir in 6.5 oz plain flour, and bring together to form a dough. Stir in some dark chocolate drops. Press into a tin (I used my shiny new flan tin again, which is 18cm in diameter, but you could use a bigger tin and have slightly thinner shortbread which would need less time in the oven) and cook at 150C for about an hour, or until it starts to turn slightly golden. Cut into triangles...


  1. I just had a flaxseed with dark chocolate chips cookie, your shortbread looks rather more yummy!

  2. Looks delicious! I love shortbread.

  3. I'm from the home of shortbread and love it dearly.
