These honey shortbread biscuits have a subtle honey flavour and a soft shortbread texture and melt in the mouth. These shortbread biscuits go perfectly with a coffee and tea.

  1. Step 1:

    Add all the ingredients into a food processor and whizz until a soft ball of dough forms.  

  2. Step 2:

    Wrap the dough in cling film (or place in a small airtight container) and place in the fridge to chill for min 30 mins or until firm enough to roll.

  3. Step 3:

    Gently roll the dough out on a floured surface to about 5-8mm thick and cut into shapes using a desired biscuit cutter (e.g. 5cm round biscuit cutter). Transfer the biscuits onto a lined baking tray and chill in the fridge for a further 10 minutes.

  4. Step 4:

    Preheat the oven to 160°C fan before placing in the oven to bake for approx. 10-12 minutes or until pale golden at the edges. Transfer the biscuits to a wire rack to cool before serving with a light dusting of icing sugar.
