Chocolate Chip Shortbread

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.


  • 250g butter, softened
  • ½ cup icing (confectioners) sugar
  • 1 ¾ cups plain flour
  • ¼ cup rice flour
  • ½ cup chocolate chips


  1. Place flours in bowl and whisk together to combine
  2. Place butter in separate bowl, add sugar, and mix until pale and fluffy
  3. Add flour mix and choc chips, stir until a ball forms
  4. Roll out dough between two sheets of baking (parchment) paper
  5. Place dough on tray, and freeze 30 minutes
  6. Cut into desired size, and bake 180°C (my small pieces baked for 14min)
