I'm not sure why but i'd never made shortbread until last week, but with my monthly missions in mind i set about making some. It was really easy and tasted sooo good. I got a basic recepie from the BBC website but have adapted it a little bit.
Preheat your oven to 190C or Gas mark 5.
Put the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until smooth, then stir in the flour and chocolate chips until it forms a dough.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out until it is about 1cm thick.
Cut your biscuits, i made mine round but you can cut into fingers or any other shape you'd like, pop them onto a greased baking tray and put them into the fridge for about 20 minutes.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Sprinkle with sugar(i went a bit overboard here!) and leave to cool.
This recipie made 15 biscuits, but it depends on the size/shape of biscuits you want to make.
