We thought we would post a recipe for something which you can make for Christmas and also give as a gift to your friends or family. These wonderful Christmas Shortbread biscuits can be made a few days in advance and stored in an air tight container. We recently discovered the cake tin and carrier with handles from Premier Housewares a few weeks ago and found this perfect for storing a nice large batch of shortbread. The thing we loved about the carrier is that the bottom is actually a baking tin, so you can bake your treats, remove from the oven and then store the treats all in the same container. Brilliant idea!
We also used another new toy in the creation of this recipe. The Stellar Eazistore bakeware set. This is probably the best thing we’ve got in a long time, especially since we have quite limited kitchen space with the amount of kitchen equipment we accumulate. The Stellar Eazistore is a 5 piece non stick nesting bakeware set, meaning that every piece fits neatly into the other. The 5 separate pieces would normally take up a lot of cupboard space but this has really freed up some of ours. Included is a roasting pan, muffin tin, two different sized baking trays and a cooling rack. Normal in store price for this is £48 which we think is a bargain!
This shortbread is melt in your mouth and with the subtle but noticeable taste of Christmas spices Cinnamon and Ginger.
