Shortbread is the easiest of all the Christmas cookies to make. In fact, it’s so simple that this is the year that I’m going to throw the kids in the kitchen and let them have at it.
I recently discovered that there’s a major difference in American recipes for shortbread, versus traditional English or Scottish recipes – rice flour. And after testing several recipes over the last few weeks, I prefer my shortbread with the subtle crunch of rice flour.
The addition of chocolate chips gives this shortbread a small punch of chocolate flavour without overpowering the subtle flavours of the traditional recipe (if you love the punch of chocolate, you can find chocolate shortbread over on my blog).Print
