Christmas Shortbread

Light some candles, get the Buble Christmas 
album out and preheat your ovens for today's
Christmas baking post......


.......

You all know how much I love to bake, but there's just something that makes baking at this time of year more special. There's a copious amount of different festive recipes out there so trying to decide what to bake over the festive season is quite a difficult task. For my first bake of Blogmas, I thought I'd start off with a simple classic recipe that everyone loves: shortbread biscuits. 

I found a great recipe on the Food Network website and I was delighted with how they turned out. They were light, buttery and crumbly; everything a shortbread biscuit should be! I chose a few different shapes from the classic star to cute little Christmas trees and a few snowflakes thrown in for good measure. 

I didn't adapt the recipe at all so I'll just leave you to have a read of it for yourself (here). And if you do make them, I hope you like them as I much as I do! I know I've already eaten way too many..... ah well, 'tis the season and all that jazz ;-)


What will you be baking over the festive period?

Happy Blogmas!

Love,
Cliona xx
