Chocolate Shortbread


This is a nice easy recipe for a very chocolatey biscuit.

The dough freezes well and the biscuits can be frozen too if you haven’t eaten them all!

Makes 40 biscuits.


220g butter

110g caster sugar

300g plain flour

30g cocoa powder


Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the flour and cocoa.

Form the dough into a long sausage, wrap in plastic wrap and pop into the fridge.

Chill the dough for Β at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Centigrade. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment.

Slice 0.5cm rounds from the dough and place on the prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.
