Lemon Shortbread

I love the idea of having cookies in a jar, its not really a thing in Ireland to have homemade cookies its more of an American idea but I love it, and shortbread is great as its light and you can add it to your desserts. This recipe can be made in advance, the mix can be stored in the fridge and can last up to 4 weeks uncooked and wrapped in the fridge.

225g Plain Flour
112g Cornflour
112g Icing Sugar
225g Unsalted Butter (Softened)
2 Lemons, Zested


  1. Sieve; flour, cornflour and icing sugar into a bowl.
  2. Rub in the butter and lemon zest.
  3. Mix until a dough is formed.
  4. Roll into cylinders and wrap in cling film.
  5. Leave to harden in the fridge to make it easier to slice.
  6. Bake at 165 degrees/ gas mark 3 for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Cool, and serve.
