Christmas Shortbread Trees

Friday, 18 December 2015







It's the most wonderful time of the year . . .  Yes I am joining in the Festive blog vibes late but hey better late than never. I have been so busy with my new interiors business this year I have barely had a second to myself ( check it out here ; www.violetolivia.com) . I am also just going through a house move to a bigger place which is exciting but all these things have drained my finances so this year I am busy making handmade gifts. 
The gorgeous shortbread christmas tree cookies are perfect for those foodie lovers !

Here's how to make them.

Ingredients

125 grams of unsalted butter
55 grams of caster sugar
180 grams of plain flour

Method

Heat Oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5

1. Cream the butter and sugar together using either a wooden spoon or an electric whisk.
2. Next add the flour to form a paste ( which eventually turns intos ball of dough) get your hands involved!
3. Roll out the dough to roughly 1cm/1.5 cm thick to form and cut out your shapes.
4. Bake in over for 10 -15 mins
5. Cool on a wire rack
6. Sit back with a cup of tea and enjoy!

Happy Christmas!
