Chocolate Shortbread

Published Thursday, 27 May, 2010 by tracy sharp

easy peasy shortbread



  • 150g plain flour
  • 150g butter
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder


put all the ingredients in a bowl, mix with your fingers until it has become like a dough. (This will take a few minutes, and its a bit messy, but you can lick the mixture from your fingers after, yum yum).

place on a greased tray, flatten into a circle (about 3-5cm deep) and poke all over with a fork. put in oven (160c) for 40 minutes.

Take out of oven, leave to cool for ten minutes, transfer to plate and cut into slices.

Sometimes at the mixing stage i add choc chips, and sometime when its cooled i cover the shortbread in glace icing. You can do what ever you feel like, it's lush. I make it for my stepkids as an easy, cheap pudding.. They love it. you will to.
