About the bake

This vegan shortbread is really easy to make. You end up with a crumbly buttery biscuit with a delicate flavour. This recipe is perfect as an everyday biscuit, but if you'd like to make a variation in flavour, we have got a really tasty orange and dark chocolate version

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180ºC/ 160ºc fan/gas mark 4

  2. Step 2:

    Using a wooden spoon and a mixing bowl, mix the butter and sugar together.

  3. Step 3:

    Stir in the flour. Once you've just mixed the flour, use your hands to mix it all together until ingredients are combined.

  4. Step 4:

    Halve the dough and roll each piece into a log, about 5cm thick. Wrap in cling film and chill for at least an hour.

  5. Step 5:

    Slice the logs into rounds, about 1 cm thick. Transfer them to a baking tray lined up with baking parchment, and bake for about 10- 12 minutes until lightly golden. Allow to cool on the tray.
