Shortbread Hearts

I love Sunday, a day of tidying, reading books and drinking endless cups of tea. Today I’m hoping to start planning a quilt project or two, so I need something yummy to go with my cups of tea and help inspire me. What could be better than some simple shortbread biscuits! I love having something homemade stashed away in the biscuit jar when the sugar cravings kick in. I was given some heart shaped cookie cutters for Christmas so they made their debut today...

These lovely shortbreads came out quite crunchy and crumbly and when dipped into my tea made a perfect afternoon sweet treat!


I wonder if I will have any left by the end of the week? I doubt it, we’ve already tucked into quite a few already.

Have a lovely sunny Sunday!

Post Edit – Thank you Hanna for your message about the recipe for the shortbread.  The recipe I used for these lovely shortbreads is from a little cook book called Home Recipes with Be-Ro Flour – 39th Edition.  Ingredients are 9oz of plain flour, 3oz of caster sugar and 6oz of butter. To make these yummy shortbread biscuits you need to sift the flour and add the sugar and butter to a bowl. Then rub in the butter until the mixture starts to come together. Knead the dough gently and then roll out on a floured surface. Cut out shortbread into whatever shape you fancy and then place gently on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes until they look done on 190°C.
