Everyone likes a bit of shortbread at Christmas! However nothing comes close to homemade shortbread, especially when you get to eat it the day it has been made! I’ve always thought that the best way to eat it is with a cup of tea. Mmmm!
Last Christmas I made simple lemon shortbread but this year wanted to do a different flavour. After brainstorming a few ideas it just came to me – cranberry and orange shortbread. Yes!
Apart from adding a juicy hit of flavour, the cranberries makes the shortbread stand out. The orange adds a bit of zest and the whole thing together is to die for! Tomorrow evening we are off out with friends for a festive curry night so I’ve made a massive batch and giving them all a bag each to try. My friends love being my food tasters and along with the positives it’s great for me to get feedback on what could have been better.
Plus I think Dean and I are getting a bit tubby with all the Christmas cakes and shortbread I’ve been making!
