Who says that you have to go out to your local coffee shop to get the yummy treats that you love? With this Chocolate Chunk Shortbread recipe you can bring the coffee shop experience to your home and enjoy your favourite nibbles with a cup of hot Java without even having to get out of your PJ's and slippers. 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C/130°Fan/Gas Mark 2. Grease and line a 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

  2. Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla extract to make a smooth soft paste.

    • 125g Salted Butter (Softened)
    • 60g Billington's Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar
    • 1 tsp Nielsen Massey Vanilla Extract
  3. Sift in the flour and add the chocolate chunks.

    • 200g Plain White Flour
    • 100g Dark Chocolate Chunks (Or Chocolate Chips)
  4. Bring together with a wooden spoon and then your hands to make firm dough. Don't overwork it or the shortbread will be tough.

  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it out a quarter at a time until it is 5mm thick. Cut into rounds using a 6cm/2 ½ inch round cutter.

  6. Place the rounds (you should have 14) on the prepared baking trays. Bake in your preheated oven for 30 minutes.

  7. After 30 minutes the shortbread should still be pale. Remove from the oven and cool on the tray for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

    I just made these for the first time.
    I ended up with chocolate shortbread as all the chocolate melted🤪 obviously I did something wrong.

    They still taste delicious according to my sons. I don’t like chocolate so didn’t try them .

    Fantastic! So easy can use a variety of different types of chocolate to make them more interesting but the basic recipe is a firm favourite in our house, quick, easy and super tasty

    These are so quick and easy to make and I normally have all ingredients at home so can make them when I fancy them. Only downside is they taste so good that my family get to them before I can have one.
