In my last recipe I said I make biscuits for my team at work but I also add some shortbread to my little parcels.

I think shortbread is such a good recipe to make and I love a good shortbread biscuit.

I always just do nice simple shapes when making my shortbread and go for either round or a little flower cutter.

Shortbread can be eaten all year round but at Christmas everywhere you go there are big tins of shortbread being sold.

I think shortbread is the perfect and quick homemade gift any time of the year.

I think homemade gifts are always nice because it shows the length you have gone through.
