Chocolate Chip Shortbread

A deliciously rich buttery shortbread combined with soft melt in the mouth chocolate chips. Sounds complicated? It really isnt.

200g Butter
100g Caster Sugar
75g Good Quality Milk Chocolate
300g NEILL'S®Plain Flour

Preheat oven to 150C
Rub the flour and butter together using your hands. You can use a food processor however I prefer doing it by hand. Continue until everything comes together.
Add the sugar and work this through the mixture. Knead until you can form it into a ball.
Cut the chocolate into small chunks and quickly work through the mixture, do not over handle or the chocolate will begin the melt.
Place the dough on a small baking tray and press down until it is about 0.5 inches thick
Use a knife to mark into squares. Do not cut all the way through.
Bake in oven for 35 mins. They should be a light golden colour.
Take out, Sprinkle with a little caster sugar and leave to cool.

You're done!
